The 2020 - 2021 is like none we've seen before. UM has gone to remarkable lengths to create a learning environment on campus that is safe--or as safe as can be--and from what I see, everyone is doing their best to keep it that way.
It's tricky organizing all the technology at the start of each class since some of the students are in the room, some are participating live virtually, and others engage the course in an asynchronous method. But I feel fortunate to continue instruction and no matter where the students are, the goal is to ensure the richest learning experience possible.
But students continue via Frost Online, too. In fact the numbers of AP students continues to grow through the online degree option. Visit https://www.frostonline.miami.edu .
Overall, I (and I think everyone) is hopeful for a school year filled with truly meaningful experiences that make a lasting and positive difference.
