Fall 2020

As we finalize plans for the Fall 2020 semester, we know that this is not going to be a typical start to the year given the complexities with which we are faced because of COVID-19. However, we will be flexible, and we will adapt. We are in this together and our success depends upon all of us supporting one another and the institution as we adapt to changing circumstances.

We have been preparing since March to welcome students back to campus while also implementing all of the ways we can do that safely.
The foundation of our approach to this semester is the following: to maintain and sustain safety practices that protect the health of our community so that we can continue accomplishing MMA’s educational mission while we are also supporting a student experience that considers the whole person. In everything we do, we will be balancing three fundamental things: safety, MMA’s educational mission, and the student experience.

We will have additional news to share in the coming weeks, which we will send by email and via updates to this website, so check back here for more information. In the meantime, enjoy your summer and please stay safe!
