President Rivera Shares Updates for Fall
As we plan for the 2020-2021 academic year, COVID-19 is still an important factor. We’ve recently communicated our intention to start classes on September 2, 2020 with a new structure designed for maximum flexibility. Here, President Rivera shares our approach to planning, discusses the structure of the 2020-2021 school year, and answers questions in this recorded event.
Over the past few months faculty, staff, and students have shared a variety of experiences and perspectives in a series of virtual events. Hundreds of high school students and families joined to learn more about the Macalester community and our surrounding cities. If you missed any, recordings are available.
