Dr. Mo Dehghani, chancellor of Missouri S&T, sent the following message to students, faculty and staff on Nov. 16:

Distinguished colleagues and dear friends,

My message earlier this week about our plans to return to campus after Thanksgiving omitted some important information. Although COVID-19 cases among our campus community have risen during the past week (the cases are moderating now), it’s important to note that none of these cases can be traced to classroom or lab activity, experiential learning functions, or residence halls.

As we have done throughout the semester, we will continue to accommodate students who need or choose to continue their studies remotely.

To clarify, students have the option to either return to campus after Thanksgiving break to attend their in-person classes or complete the final two weeks of classes remotely. Accordingly, if you are a student and need remote-learning accommodations, please work with your instructors and academic advisors.

At this point, based on the current status of cases on campus and in the community, faculty will determine the mode for any final exams or other end-of-semester assessments.

We will continue to monitor our situation and based on contact tracing data, will adjust our plans accordingly.


Mo Dehghani
