MAU Coronavirus Alert #6

Dear Student, Faculty and Staff,

As your Campus President, I must say, I miss being seeing all of you in our classrooms and hallways! In these times of uncertainty and change, I hope that everyone has settled in well with remote learning. Remember that our MAU staff and faculty members are available to you via email, telephone, or webcam to answer any questions.

While we are learning and working away from the campus building, it is important we all stay in touch. If you need counseling or help, the Students Services and Placement Department is available to assist you via email, phone, or webcam to help you cope, or to address any concerns. Our academic tutoring services are available via webcam, and our library services are also accessible online.

MAU remains committed to following the recommendations provided by our state and local authorities. As such, we have decided to extend remote instruction into the summer semester. By limiting our social interaction, we will help to slow the spread of COVID-19 and support our state’s overwhelmed health care system. I am pleased to advise there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our MAU community. I am proud of each one of you for following the preventative measures and for maintaining your social distance.

MAU Current Students, please keep note of these critical updates:

  • Final exams will begin on Monday, May 4th and conclude on Saturday, May 9th:
  • Summer classes will start on May 11th via remote instruction until further notice.
  • Should the COVID-19 situation stabilize sooner than expected, MAU, will reopen its campus building and continue instruction with the traditional mode of of face-to-face learning.
