October 2, 2020: Reminder - Classes going remote after Thanksgiving

The University will transition to a distance education model for all classes for the remainder of the fall semester beginning Monday, Nov. 30. This transition was included in the University’s Falcon Forward planfor the fall semester, which was published and distributed to campus this summer.

Although all classes will be held remotely after the Thanksgiving break, residence halls and campus dining facilities will remain open to serve resident students as well as employees for the remainder of the semester. Accordingly, all UM staff employees are expected to continue to work on campus for the remainder of the fall semester, with the exception of employees whose circumstances warrant a leave of absence or remote work. In such cases, staff should consult their supervisor or Human Resources prior to the Thanksgiving break for guidance and authorization.

University officials continue to monitor the progression of the COVID-19 outbreak and will determine any future calendar modifications based on community spread of the disease and sound medical and professional advice. The University’s academic calendar is available at
