    Congratulations to the Class of 2020

    The COVID-19 pandemic has upended life throughout the United States and around the world. But it has also revealed once again the importance of research universities and the need for educated, creative and talented people to lead in an uncertain future. We are ever so grateful that the University of Michigan Class of 2020 will rise to meet the challenge.

U-M’s Winter Semester

Informed by data, feedback and engagement from our community, U-M will substantially increase COVID-19 testing, further reduce campus density, and provide more options for remote learning during the winter term.

Our plans seek to help faculty and students advance their academic goals, and make sure our students continue to make progress towards their degrees, with new measures to address key concerns throughout our community.

I join all of you in wishing that our winter term could be normal, and we could enjoy the transition into spring free of the anxieties of this pandemic. The semester will be the third consecutive one of hardship for our community. I pledge that we will continue to engage and listen to your concerns as we work to make the winter semester a positive one despite these difficult circumstances.
