Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
The University has taken steps over the last several weeks to keep our entire community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the transition to online PsyD classes, providing temporary telework arrangements for faculty and staff, sharing CDC recommendations to protect yourself and others from contracting COVID-19 as well as implementing enhanced protocols for social distancing. In an effort to respond to this evolving situation, the executive team has implemented temporary campus building hours for all students, faculty and staff.
Beginning this Monday, March 23, the DMU campus building will be accessible to the University community from 8:00am to 6:00pm. You will have access to the building during these hours using your key fob or student ID. Please be aware of the following:
- A security officer will be onsite from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
- It is important that everyone follows the security officer’s instructions. When the security officer asks you to leave the building at 6:00pm, please do so. If any instructions are ignored, the security officer has been advised to notify University leadership. Failure to follow instructions will be considered a breach of University policy and our professional code of conduct.
- The IPS Center is closed for at least next week. Only IPS Center staff has authorization to use the Center space. Therapy sessions should not be scheduled to be conducted in the IPS Center.
- Please adhere to the CDC guideline to limit the number of people in any space to 10. Meeting rooms and classrooms have specific occupancy limitations as indicated on the door of each room. Please follow posted occupancy guidelines.
- The Library will be open during the new campus building hours.
- If you have any questions regarding the new schedule of building hours, please reach out to your academic advisor or supervisor.
I want to thank all of you for hard work and positive attitude during this situation. You have exemplified our University spirit and I look forward to the time when we can, once again, celebrate our collective successes together as family.
You remain in my prayers.
