Dear Faculty and Staff,

As you will see in the attached memo from Commissioner Christian, all MUS campuses are being asked to end fall semester by November 25, the day before Thanksgiving. Based on the rationale provided in the memo, I believe that this is a good idea and worth every bit of the effort that it will take to make it happen.

A representative calendar subcommittee of the Fall Courses 2020 Task Force will be formed when the group meets this afternoon. Its charge will be to create new calendar proposals. Please keep checking your email. We will be keeping you informed and asking for your input.

Thanks again for your commitment to adapting as needed in order to serve our students.

Be well,

Chancellor Beth Weatherby
