EMU Resources for Conducting Research/Scholarship/Creative Activity During the Covid-19 Pandemic
EMU has developed a preparedness and response plan for research to keep faculty, staff, and students safe while working. Please note that conditions could change quickly due to Governor Whitmer's Executive Orders, recommendations from the CDC, Washtenaw County Health Department, and other expert advice. The plan was built to allow for flexibility due to changing conditions. Specific requirements and the phase of research will be communicated by the Provost's Office. Please visit the EMU Research site for more information. To apply for access to campus, go to the Requesting Access to Research Labs or Studios When COVID-19 Restrictions are in Place form.
