Return to Campus: The Student Experience

by University Marketing and Communications

Earlier this month, Michigan Tech began Step Two of our Return to Campus Plan. As the University prepares for Step Three this fall, students and employees, understandably, have questions. To address the student experience, we spoke with Bonnie Gorman, dean of students and vice president for student affairs.

“Our plans for students to return in the fall have been far-reaching,” Gorman said. “I appreciate all the efforts by so many across campus who have been working to ensure a safe return and meaningful student experiences.”

Data is one of the key tools Michigan Tech is using to try to find COVID-19 cases quickly, stop the spread, and keep the campus community and our local community safe. We need your help in order to optimize our success. While it is essential that we know when you are symptomatic or have a positive COVID-19 test, data that you are not exhibiting symptoms or have had a negative COVID-19 test is also important as we are actively monitoring our campus health conditions. We are now pleased to announce that in the ongoing efforts to keep our community as safe and informed as possible in the midst of the current global coronavirus pandemic, Michigan Tech is making it even easier for employees to add to the information being amassed to fight COVID-19 on campus.
