U of M president to recommend in-person fall classes

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The president of the University of Minnesota plans to recommend that the school resume in-person classes this fall after moving to online offerings during the coronavirus pandemic.

President Joan Gabel also will recommend to the Board of Regents next week that the university reopen residence halls in the fall.

The Star Tribune reports Gabel announced her recommendations Friday.

The recommendations come after weeks of deliberations with university leaders and public health experts.

Gabel also will suggest each campus adjust its academic calendars to conclude in-person instruction by Thanksgiving, or earlier if state health officials deem it necessary.

Her plan must be approved by regents.
