A Message from President Bob Davies

CMU President Bob Davies

Dear students, colleagues and friends,

The past several months presented our community with extraordinary challenges, and I remain grateful for and impressed by your ability to adapt and thrive through the rapidly changing circumstances.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and community members have been our guiding priorities as we make decisions about university operations — including teaching, learning, research and other daily activities. This will continue as we move forward planning for the fall semester and beyond.

We are preparing to more fully resume in-person operations, including face-to-face instruction, and I want to be certain each of you feels prepared to come back to learn, teach, work and live. We are implementing many universitywide protocols and practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and each of us shares responsibility for keeping CMU as safe as possible.

This website is designed to provide important details about CMU policies and procedures to keep our community safe. Please review this information carefully and adhere to all guidelines and requirements. We are all responsible for protecting ourselves and others.

And remember, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention best practices, including social distancing, wearing face coverings and handwashing, apply everywhere — not just at CMU. Whether you are stopping by the grocery store, visiting friends or filling up on gas, I encourage you to do all you can to protect yourself and others.


I look forward to seeing you back on campus!

Be well,

Bob Davies
