U-M decisions regarding COVID-19
The University of Michigan has announced plans to offer a public health-informed in-residence semester this fall. It will consist of a mixture of in-person and remote classes designed to keep students, faculty, and staff safe.
Details on the upcoming semester and the University's strategy moving forward can all be found by visiting the 2020-21 Campus Maize and Blueprint.
What this means for our museum
The U-M Museum of Paleontology (UMMP) does not operate public exhibit spaces, and its research operations will continue until further notice.
In support of the social distancing recommended by the University and CDC, the UMMP has cancelled the Paleoseminar in-person meetings. Alternate arrangements are being made to ensure the continuation of sharing our research among our community.
Until further notice, we are no longer scheduling visits to the UMMP collections and will be no longer be handling loan requests and returns. Our collection managers will still be available for information requests. During this interim, some specimens can be studied through the University of Michigan Online Repository of Fossils (UMORF).
