Saint Mary’s has installed groundbreaking purification systems on its Winona and Twin Cities campuses. These systems, which were being discussed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic as part of Saint Mary’s commitment to healthy living and wellness for students, will significantly contribute to the health and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors by purifying the air and surfaces of harmful materials, including viruses.
During recent months, the university has implemented a number of changes or new practices to increase the safety of our environments for students, faculty, and staff across all campuses.
Suzanne Shatila, director of the Master of Social Work program, has been appointed a member of the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE) on the Role and Status of Women in Social Work Education.
Ann Schissel, Ph.D., joined Saint Mary’s University as an assistant professor in the Psy.D. in Counseling Psychology program on May 1.
Saint Mary’s has required masks or face coverings in common areas, classrooms, and in-person meetings since early July. As of July 25, per an executive order from Minnesota’s governor, all people in Minnesota are required to wear a face covering in all public indoor spaces and businesses, unless alone.
As members of the Saint Mary’s community, we each play an important role as we plan our return to the university’s various campuses and locations. Every member of the Saint Mary’s community is asked to join in adopting the safety protocols put into place to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19.
