We were all looking forward to returning to our beloved campus in a few weeks. Knowing it would look different, but optimistic about how resilient Spartans would be to the change. As universities across the country begin to re-open, there are spikes in cases, putting students, staff, faculty, and community members at risk for COVID-19. President Stanley has taken aggressive action throughout the pandemic, being the first university in Michigan to pivot to online instruction in March. Today, President Stanley is again taking aggressive action by announcing MSU will continue online instruction for the fall semester.
As fellow Spartans, we understand this means a further disruption to an already disruptive few months. We want to reiterate our commitment to serving our Spartan community. Today’s announcement saddens us, but keeping our community safe is the highest priority. We admire the humility and leadership that it takes to learn from others, and quickly pivot for the sake of our safety.
We look forward to working with President Stanley and other administrators on this fluid situation and promise to keep Spartans informed through constant communication and updates.
