To Twin Cities faculty: We are soliciting pandemic-related courses for Fall 2020. Courses don’t need to be about COVID-19 specifically. We have heard about course ideas rooted in science, policy, history, psychology, economics, and more.

To Twin Cities faculty: Given your critical work in carrying out the educational mission of the University, we wanted to share with you a communication that was emailed to students earlier this week.

To all Twin Cities faculty and staff: all summer non-curricular events for May and June are cancelled (unless they can be offered online). We will evaluate our decision for July non-curricular events in approximately mid-May, providing more time for public health information and the course of the pandemic to evolve.

April 14, 2020

To all Twin Cities faculty: The University of Minnesota is launching a curriculum in summer 2020 for students who are interested in studying topics related to our current situation. We have some existing courses that could be taught over the summer to contribute to this curriculum and there is also opportunity for new courses to be offered.

April 7, 2020

To all Twin Cities undergraduate, graduate, and professional students: If you are currently enrolled in a May or Summer course and it will be delivered remotely, you do not need to do anything to remain enrolled. If a course in which you are enrolled cannot be delivered remotely, you will be informed directly. Research experiences, internships, and other summer curriculum will proceed if they can be completed remotely. Otherwise they will be cancelled or postponed.
