Online Resources Available for English Students

Studying and working at EMU has looked a lot different since March 11, when President James Smith announced that university events and face-to-face instructions would be suspended until April 1.  Face-to-face instruction and university events were soon suspended for the rest of the semester, as a growing number of COVID-19 cases prompted Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to initiate an executive order, also calling on restaurants, gyms, fitness centers, and libraries to close.

President Smith, in one of many daily communications that have been sent to the EMU community during this crisis, urges students to  “continue to follow social distancing guidance, as well as hand washing and other prevention measures.

"Follow University email," he advises,  "go to the University’s COVID-19 website and the University's Frequently Asked Questions for additional information and updates, as well as resources to help keep you safe.”
