Back to School: Fall 2020 Campus Info
The Stamps School of Art & Design is excited to welcome students to our classrooms and our studios in the fall 2020 term, in alignment with U-M President Mark Schlissel’s public health-informed return to campus.
With the health of our students at the center of our work, we are proud to offer a mixture of in-person studio courses, hybrid courses, and remote classes structured to reflect our commitment to promoting public health while fulfilling our fundamental mission of transformative undergraduate and graduate education.
Equipped with guidance and ideas from our leading scholars, innovative students, and expert staff, we will welcome students to the Ann Arbor campus, classrooms, and residence halls. Most students will have the option of choosing whether to return to Ann Arbor for a hybrid learning experience or study from home in a fully remote mode. Currently, we're working with our faculty cohort leaders to create a strong plan for those who request a fully remote option. Details will be shared in the coming days.
The fall semester will look and feel very different due to the challenges of COVID-19, and will bring with it new protocols and strategies that are necessary to keep our community safe. Here at Stamps, we will ask all of you to join in prudent health and safety actions that will embody our commitment to caring for one another.
There are three important websites to bookmark for up-to-date information about your public health-informed fall semester:
- The university's Maize and Blueprint website
- The university’s Public Affairs coronavirus website
- The School of Public Health’s coronavirus news page
Art & Architecture Building Updates
Our collective safety requires we all do our part by practicing strong personal hygiene habits, wearing a face covering when appropriate, maintaining a physical distance of six (6) feet, and staying home when sick.
Plans for increased disinfection for high-touch spots are currently in the works, alongside plans to ensure cleaning supplies are available in areas with shared equipment. More details on these efforts will be forthcoming.
Many de-densification measures have been put in place to limit the number of people in the building and in each area to keep the community safe.
