CMU, Booth UC, Providence UC share plan for Fall semester

July 22, 2021
Two of the three faith-based postsecondary institutions in Manitoba are planning for an in-person return to class in September, reports John Longhurst for the Winnipeg Free Press. Canadian Mennonite University and Providence University College will be welcoming students in person, but will be ready to pivot online if necessary. Both institutions are encouraging their students to get vaccinated, and students who will be living in residence will have single rooms. Meanwhile, Booth University College will be starting the year online, with instructors given the option of meeting in-person if students are comfortable. A move back to in-person classes is a possibility, according to VP and Academic Dean Michael Boyce, if the situation makes it possible and students are open to it. Booth will require students living in residence to be fully vaccinated. Winnipeg Free Press (MB)
