Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced a statewide “stay at home order” effective Friday, March 27 at midnight until April 10. This two-week order will not change what we have already put in place. The COVID-19 task force and administrative leadership team have finalized our institutional plans for a stay at home order. All essential operations will remain in place during this time and continue.
The in-person baccalaureate and commencement events scheduled for May 30 and 31 will not take place.

We ask for your patience as the committee systematically works through the planning details. The next committee meeting will be held April 2 and an update will follow.
