Following is the college’s current plan to return to campus this fall. It is grounded in guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), and the work of the Infectious Disease Task Force and other campus working groups. Implementation will be overseen by Professor Paul Overvoorde, Special Advisor to the President and Director of COVID Operations. Staff and faculty at the college have been at work all summer making changes to the campus that minimize the risks for our community.

Flexibility this fall will be key. It is possible that, despite our best attempts to welcome people back to physical campus in person, evolving circumstances may necessitate that we change course. We will continue to update the plan as conditions evolve.
