12 Ways to 12 Weeks

We all play a part in making this a safe and successful semester. Our academic calendar has
been condensed to 12 weeks and our goal is to complete the semester with as much face-to-face
instruction as possible.

In order to meet that goal, we have developed 12 ways to get to 12 weeks. By pledging to make
these 12 steps part of your everyday life at Maine Maritime Academy, you are committing to doing
your part to limit the spread of COVID-19. Together, we can make the health and safety of our
community a priority. Together, we can achieve success.

Thank you for doing your part!
