MU officials provided additional details Wednesday on their plans to gradually reopen the campus, beginning with limited faculty returning next week in the first phase of the “Show Me Renewal” plan, according to a campus email from MU Interim Chancellor Mun Choi and Provost Latha Ramchand.

The steps, made in consultation with local health officials, are the first tangible signs of what leaders hope can be a return to campus this fall by students. This follows Choi’s previous announcement that the first wave of researchers would begin May 20.

The group will be focused on resuming research, but some university leaders and staff who have necessary in-person duties will be approved to return, the email said.

The email asked that all employees not in this group continue working remotely for the time being.
