Alumni Association Update on COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the University of Michigan community, unfortunately, has not been spared. We at the Alumni Association are taking proactive steps to ensure that we help “flatten the curve” of infection growth.

While many of us are at very low risk for serious health consequences from the virus, we are all potential carriers and, therefore, play important roles in how quickly it spreads. A steep spike in cases will threaten the viability of our health care system and endanger the health and lives of people we know.

Therefore, we have decided that members of our staff will work remotely, rather than in our current shared office workspace. This temporary arrangement will begin on Monday, March 16, and likely continue for about 30 days. The exact end date will depend on the future direction of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Alumni Association and our alumni clubs are expected to cancel or postpone any events or upcoming gatherings. Additionally, the Michigan Alumni Travel program is working on a daily basis to accommodate the needs of our travelers. And we are monitoring the situation closely for Camp Michigania summer programming. You can continue to find the latest status of all our programs and events below and on our social media channels.

Despite the precautions we are taking, we will continue to be responsive to your needs as U-M alumni and Association members and to work hard on your behalf. So please continue to phone and email us as you normally would.

If you want more information about the outbreak and its impact on the University, please refer to U-M’s announcements website. The Alumni Association’s Education Gateway will continue to feature all the important findings from the University and Michigan Medicine to keep the community informed.

As always, we appreciate the support that our proud alumni provide the University. And we hope that you fare well during this very challenging time.

Sincerely,


Steve Grafton
President and CEO
Alumni Association of the University of Michigan
