Health Department approves Marquette reopening plan, university to make final decision on fall plans this week

The Milwaukee Health Department has approved the university’s plans for a mixture of in-person, hybrid and online instruction this fall. This is the most recent step in Marquette’s recovery planning process. As previously communicated, Marquette will make a final decision regarding fall reopening plans this week.

Members of the university’s COVID-19 Response Team met and engaged in productive conversations with Milwaukee Health Commissioner Jeanette Kowalik and her team to ensure that Marquette’s Recovery Plan meets the city’s stringent guidelines for reopening campus. Marquette would like to thank City of Milwaukee leaders, including Mayor Tom Barrett, Commissioner Kowalik and her team. The city and the university are united in our commitment to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and well-being of the Marquette and Milwaukee communities, while still delivering on our Catholic, Jesuit educational mission.

Marquette’s Recovery Plan is a phased approach, which allows for the ability to pivot from one step in the plan to the next, and step back, if needed.

Additional information and a final decision regarding fall reopening plans will be shared later this week.
