Summer session 2020 will be based entirely on distance education formats.

The summer session begins on May 18. I understand your concerns and will make every effort to communicate with you as frequently as possible so that you may have accurate and current information. In this challenging time, I appreciate your support, positivity, and cooperation as we work ensure the safety and well-being of our campus community.
