The fall semester of the University of Minnesota Morris got underway on the 19th of this month, and U of M Morris Chancellor Michelle Behr told the KMRS Community Connection that people will notice some differences on campus in this COVID-infected year.
“We have about 600 students living in the residence halls, which represents fewer than half of the total number of students that are enrolled,” said Behr. “About 80 percent of our students are taking at least one class in person, and about 20 percent of our students are fully remote.”
Behr said faculty had the choice of running their classes remotely or in-person and that classrooms have been reconfigured to have seating that allows for safe physical distancing. Face coverings are required to be worn inside all university buildings and even outside if a 6 foot distance cannot be maintained.
