CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

To align with University directives and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all in person activities, events and programs involving children should be conducted virtually and in alternative formats until further notice. These changes will remain in effect until otherwise directed by University of Michigan leadership and public health officials. Please check here periodically for resources and updates to support virtual experiences that align with the Children on Campus policy.
