Face covering requirement: Effective July 1, 2020 and continuing until rescinded, all University students, faculty, staff, and visitors (including contractors, service providers, vendors, and suppliers) are required to use a face covering at all times when in any enclosed or indoor space on University campuses and properties. Review President Gabel's June 29 message.

Summer activities: Proposals for summer programs, activities, events and recreation centers are now being accepted from program coordinators.
