Winter 2021 COVID-19 Policies

Winter 2021 COVID-19 Policies

On Friday, November 6, University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel announced the university’s plans for the Winter 2021 semester. The plans were developed in close consultation with public health experts, faculty, staff, students at all levels, the local health department, campus leaders, and many others. As the pandemic continues here in Michigan and across the nation, safety is at the forefront of these plans.

Full information on the Winter 2021 plans is detailed on the Campus Maize & Blueprint website. At Stamps, the Winter 2021 semester will be impacted in the following ways:

Course Modalities

Faculty carefully considered which Stamps Winter 2021 undergraduate courses required in-person instruction for successful delivery. The majority of Stamps courses will be delivered remotely this winter. Course modalities are accurately reflected in Wolverine Access and on the Stamps website.

Studio Access

Winter 2021 A&A Building hours and access to the media-specific studios are detailed on this document. We plan to open classrooms and studios on the first day of classes, Tuesday January 19, 2021.

Commencement + Senior Exhibition

Announcements about our virtual commencement celebrations and the 2021 Stamps Senior Show will be coming soon.

Stay Up-to-Date

There are four important websites to bookmark for up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 policies for the Winter 2021 semester:

Additionally, faculty, staff, students, and families will find the following resources helpful:

Compliance Reporting

Students, faculty, and staff at both the Stamps School and Taubman College will be encouraged to report non-emergency building compliance concerns via our Art + Architecture Building Compliance Issues form. This form may be filled out anonymously, if desired. Responses will be monitored for trends and proactive solutions will be implemented for recurring issues. Coordination between the chiefs of staff of Taubman and Stamps will occur on a regular basis to share what is being reported and to identify next steps.Issues may also be brought to the attention of HR and Dean’s office staff.

Faculty, staff and students will also be referred to the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) for consultation regarding concerns of bias, harassment, ADA non-compliance, and other issues that may fall under OIE’s mission.
