SVSU plans for face-to-face winter classes

SVSU addressed student concerns in a town hall meeting on June 25.

Provost Deb Huntley said as much as 75 percent of fall classes will be face-to-face or hybrid. Online class offerings have also been increased by 15 percent.

In order to accommodate social distancing, some classrooms may only be able to host 50 percent attendance at a time. Students may be asked to attend in-person on a rotating schedule.

Dean of Students Sidney Childs said students can expect activities similar to previous years. Club sports and movie nights will be available, as well as virtual events. Intercollegiate sports are not yet confirmed.

The Zahnow Library will be reopening in July with all of its usual services.

Office hours, advising and counseling will continue to be held virtually.

Face-to-face instruction will end after Thanksgiving, but students will tentatively return for face-to-face classes in the winter semester. Fall 2020 commencement decisions have not yet been made.

The university will be releasing weekly bulletins to update students of campus changes.
