The University of Central Missouri’s Lee’s Summit campus will close on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 17 and 18, to allow custodial staff members to complete a deep cleaning of the entire Missouri Innovation Campus facility. The building will reopen on Thursday, March 18.
UCM is currently on spring break through March 22, and all online, hybrid and face-to-face classes are paused until March 30 with no instruction and no assignments during this period. Beginning March 30 and through April 24, all face-to-face classes and in-person components of hybrid courses will be delivered virtually. Practicum, internships, student teaching, clinicals and flight hours will continue. Students impacted by cancellations by sponsoring agencies or businesses should contact their respective school chair for further guidance and assistance.
Both the UCM Warrensburg and Lee’s Summit campuses will remain open (with the exception of the Lee’s Summit campus scheduled closing for deep cleaning on March 17 and 18). The university’s bus service between the Warrensburg and Lee’s Summit campuses is suspended through April 24. In addition, all university-sponsored and hosted events through April 24 are cancelled.
No later than April 13, UCM will provide further guidance regarding class sessions and finals occurring after April 24.
Students wanting to contact an advisor on Tuesday and Wednesday are encouraged to contact Brenda Fuhr at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students who would like career or resume assistance may contact Clarinda Dir at email@example.com.
