Michigan Tech Will Return to Campus in the Fall of 2020

The University is fully prepared and excited to welcome students, faculty, and staff back to campus for face-to-face learning and events for the 2020-2021 academic year.


Virtual Town Hall: Plan to Return to Campus

MTU Flex Task Force held a virtual town hall for Michigan Tech students to discuss a plan to return to campus for fall 2020 on Friday, July 10, 2020.


COVID-19 has taught us that, as an institution, we can respond with flexibility in the face of a crisis. We are taking the best of what we've learned and bringing it forward to the next academic year. It's likely that some disruption from COVID-19 will continue into the fall of 2020. Our proactive response to that possibility is the MTU Flex initiative.

  • Michigan Tech is planning to welcome students, faculty, and staff back to campus for the start of the 2020-2021 academic year.
  • We are ready to pivot between face-to-face and remote instruction when necessary.
  • We are developing a comprehensive, strategic health screening process to detect, monitor, and trace any potential COVID-19 presence on campus.
  • Behavior on campus will be guided by our Health and Safety Levels, which are based on the COVID-19 public health situation on campus and in the community, the fall academic calendar, and the strength of the local health care system.

MTU Flex is built on Michigan Tech's institutional agility. It will allow us to make adjustments as required with the least amount of disruption to students, faculty, and staff. This helps ensure continuity of education, teaching, research, and workflow while continuing to prioritize the health and well-being of the Michigan Tech community.

Michigan Tech emphasizes hands-on, first-person learning. To do is to know. This situation has called on us to expand what that looks like. Our focus continues to be what's best for the health, well-being, and education of our students. That won't change.

MTU Flex also means the University will be ready to respond to disruptions caused by COVID-19, such as financial changes, a need to care for ill relatives or roommates, or a lack of reliable internet. If your individual situation changes, stay in touch, and keep the University aware of the challenges you're facing.
