University of Missouri Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Latha Ramchand announced today that all classes for the 2020 summer session will be online.
“As we continue to see the COVID-19 public health crisis spread throughout the U.S., and with deadlines approaching for our summer session, we are making the decision to continue all of our remote learning for the 2020 summer term,” Ramchand said.
All courses typically offered during the summer session will continue, but will be taught remotely, similar to courses now in session for the current spring semester. Faculty will continue to be supported through MU’s Teaching for Learning Center and the UM System Office of eLearning. Additionally, services, including the Student Success Center, the Counseling Center, the Disability Center, the Student Health Center and the Employee Assistance Program remain in operation to serve faculty, staff and students.
“I’m so proud of all the ways that our faculty, staff and students have continued to carry on in spite of the challenges that have been thrown in our path,” Ramchand said. “I have no doubt that we will overcome this terrible disruption; the resilience of our community will carry us through this. I am looking forward to the day when we can all gather again and celebrate in person everything that is Mizzou."
