Martin University will reopen our campus, located at 2186 North Sherman Drive, on Monday, June 1st. To ensure the well-being of our employees, students, and visitors, a task force was implemented to develop a plan for the reopening. Referred to as a “soft opening,” the plan will implement changes in the areas of facilities, staff/faculty and students/visitors to ensure safety protocols are followed according to Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
“The progressive plan we have in place allows us to responsibly remain the communiversity we are by providing quality education, secure employment, and community resources in the Martindale-Brightwood area and throughout Marion County,” said Dr. Sean Huddleston, President of Martin University.
Preventative measures for the campus include limited building access points, availability of personal protective equipment (PPE), temperature checks required upon entry, and increased sanitation.
Class changes will incorporate flexible accommodations, online-only classes for courses with 10 or more students, and virtual attendance options for courses with 10 or fewer students.
Some of the changes for employees are essential staff working in staggered shifts, student services departments available by appointment, continued use of virtual meetings, and the option of continued telecommuting for those 65 years or older or at high-risk.
Huddleston added, “As Marion County lifts restrictions in phases due to COVID-19, we want to ensure that the University is diligent in protecting the well-being of each and every person in our community.”
