Return to Campus
Do the Knight Thing
We are eager to welcome the community back to campus for the start of the fall semester. The College appreciates everyone’s patience as we work through the complexities of ensuring that we adhere to all the State of Vermont’s guidelines for higher education, and provide the quality education we are known for and that our students have come to expect.
In the weeks to come we will be sharing additional information about our plans to ensure that students’ experience on campus is rich and engaging despite the requirements that will make this semester a challenge for us all. In the period leading up to move-in we will continue to provide updates on our Return to Campus planning and links to new information on our website.
Our plan is rooted in the careful consideration of research and data coming out of the Centers for Disease Control and the Vermont Department of Health, consultation with peers in a variety of disciplines, and a careful review of the plans of other institutions of higher education. Throughout our research and planning, which has required countless hours of dedication, collaboration, and hard work by faculty, staff, and administrators across campus, we have maintained these guiding principles: that the health and safety of our community is of paramount importance, and that we ensure the continuity of high-quality academic instruction and student life experience and the mission of Saint Michael’s College.
While we all know that the fall semester will be like no other in the history of the College — or higher education, for that matter — thanks to the heart of our purple and gold community, we will persevere and succeed. United in our commitment to each other, we will continue our vital work together.
