Update on the format of fall classes

Many of you have read recent news stories about the City of Milwaukee Health Department enacting more restrictive guidelines for when in-person classes may resume. These reports have raised many questions about UWM’s plans for the fall.

We are writing to let you know that UWM’s leadership is working closely with the city Health Department so that we will be able to teach a portion of our classes in person this fall, as we’ve been planning. There have been a series of constructive conversations, and although we don’t yet have final details, we are confident that UWM’s significant planning for the fall will result in a positive outcome. We want to again express our gratitude to the many faculty and staff members involved in fall planning for their good work. Your efforts with careful and thorough planning have made a big difference.

We will share more information with you as it becomes available.
