Congratulations on navigating through the most unusual academic semester any of us have ever known. I was amazed at our community’s grit and determination in the face of COVID-19, and the #WabashTogether attitude we demonstrated to make sure our young men could be successful – even in a virtual classroom. We continue to encourage most employees to work from home for the time being. Plans for reopening specific offices are being developed by supervisors. For now, if you do not need to be on campus to work, please stay home and stay safe. It remains our intention to resume on-campus instruction in the fall pending the recommendations from our various campus teams and state and local governments. We hope to announce any changes to the fall semester calendar and/or campus residency between June 15 and July 1.
