COVID-19 Update

EMU employees:

As we have since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the University continues to review key metrics and to update our EMU Safe policies as appropriate. As part of that process, the University is pausing enforcement (effective immediately) of the Employee COVID-19 Vaccination/Screening Policy [PDF] (often referred to as the “employee vax-or-test” policy). For additional details, visit the website.

Engage @ EMU is EMU’s primary entry way to enhance, navigate and cultivate collaboration and partnerships between the University and business and community entities. Engage assists EMU in affirming and improving several parts of our University mission and vision:

  • Benefiting local and global communities.
  • Being an institution of opportunity and community impact.
  • Preparing students with relevant skills and real world awareness.
