COLUMBIA, Mo. — Amid the pandemic, the University of Missouri is set to reopen in-person classes in the fall.

According to a release, classes are scheduled to begin Aug. 24. System President and Interim Chancellor Mun Choi said the school is monitoring the situation and will make changes, if needed.

In March, the school suspended in-person classes due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

“Our No. 1 priority is ensuring the safety of our campus,” Choi said. “We will be ready and, importantly, we will have the flexibility in place to make any necessary changes should the situation change. We will ask and expect the cooperation of every individual to create a safe campus.”
