Fall Return Plan
MassArt will be coordinating a staggered return to campus activities and programs, starting with a partial return that focuses on student acclimation at the start of the fall semester, followed by the gradual return of co-curricular happenings over the semester based upon our findings and progress.
With this in mind, we have devised the following timeline while also helping to identify the goals that help us know when to open up greater levels of access.
