Given the unprecedented effectiveness and safety of currently available COVID-19 vaccines, promising rates of vaccination, and vastly improving public health conditions locally and in the region, CMC is preparing for a full, in-person return to campus in the fall of 2021. In another hopeful sign, the College also was delighted to host an on-campus, student-only graduation for the Class of 2021 on May 15, 2021.

During our push forward, the race to get back fully to campus depends on one key commitment: our drive to get vaccinated. Getting everyone vaccinated is our most immediate priority, and we are each essential to making this happen.

The College will continue to require the commitment to observe reasonable behavioral health and safety practices and the flexibility to adapt to any changes in public guidelines. However, a fully vaccinated community is the best way to reduce and eventually eliminate future restrictions. So, please do everything you can to get your appointments when they become available.

As we continue to plan for our fall campus return, we look ahead to so many possibilities in this special new year, including the launch of the College’s 75th Anniversary on July 1. We will monitor local health conditions and share more positive news as it becomes available.

To stay current, please check out our Dean of Students FAQ, Faculty and Staff FAQ, or email us any of your questions.

Thank you for your shared commitment to our enduring mission.

“We draw on the core values that distinguish CMC, the singular strengths that propel us forward, the learning commitments that help us persevere when it is difficult to carry on.”
