While our campus environment remains safe, MICA plans to transition into an online and alternate educational delivery mode after Spring Break. The previous announced plan of an intensive making period (from March 16th to March 27th) to support 2020 graduating students is cancelled.
- Academic leadership and faculty will work with students to ensure course and degree completion in remote and alternate modes for both undergraduate and graduate programs. The last day for access to graduate studios will be March 21st.
- Effective March 21st, the residence halls will close. All students inclusive of F-1 international students are encouraged to depart as soon as possible. A follow-up message from Residence Life to residents will be issued the afternoon of March 15 providing details and instructions for those with exceptional needs to seek support.
MICA has also cancelled all on campus events until further notice and is actively working to transition those programs to online interactive experiences.
Monday, March 16 will be a paid, off-campus, work/life adjustment day for general staff. It is a telework day for those who can telework, with accommodation to attend to home/personal needs. It is a day of leave for those who cannot telework, but anyone who can take some remote work home should strive to do so while attending to home/personal needs. The standard required attendance personnel will report to campus work as usual, but supervisors should accommodate hardship requests.
