BALTIMORE — Morgan State University announced instruction for the 2020 fall semester will be remote-only.
The change in Morgan’s plans for the fall follows the release of a new, evidence-based study from Yale University indicating that college students would need to be tested every two to three days for their institutions to safely reopen, in addition to a concerning uptick in positive cases in Baltimore City over the past month.
With the change in direction for the fall semester, Morgan will not offer face-to-face instruction and instead will deliver all courses exclusively via remote.
To achieve recommended physical distancing on campus, the University will significantly reduce campus density and prompt the vast majority of students to study from home.
The campus will remain open with limited operations, and some campus housing will be made available to select students of predetermined priority groups and/or those facing extenuating circumstances.
