The College of Engineering’s weekly update aims to provide transparent and frequent information about how the College is operating, caring for its community and planning for the future.
STATE WORKPLACE RESTRICTIONS AND U-M PLANS
On Monday, Governor Whitmer announced the state’s plans to extend workplace restrictions for six months to prevent the spread of COVID-19. U-M summarized its interpretation of that plan in the Record – indicating that the University is already in compliance with the safety requirements, and that it will not affect plans to slowly ramp up on-site work over the course of the summer in preparation for a residential experience.
Within Engineering, approximately 15% of staff already work on campus weekly. When and how additional staff will return to campus is an active conversation in College leadership, and the plan includes providing staff with several weeks’ notice before their return date. More information will be provided at the Dean’s State of the College May 13.
