Midwestern University COVID-19 Next Steps

Home / About / Midwestern University COVID-19 Next Steps

Midwestern University continues to monitor the developments regarding the coronavirus and has implemented a purpose-driven, integrated plan that addresses the safety and security needs of faculty, staff, students, and the community we serve. The Midwestern University Leadership Team, led by Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Midwestern University, has set the course for the University’s actions based on the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health departments. Key factors in the plan include the development of health screening protocols, ongoing sanitation of all facilities, and enhanced training and procedures for the health and safety of all.



MWU Clinics

The clinics are open for comprehensive healthcare services. The health and safety of our patients is our top priority, and we have increased our already vigorous cleaning protocols and adopted the best practices for patient safety.

Midwestern University returned to in-person, on-campus learning for the Summer 2021 Quarter. Since then, all students are expected to attend classes on campus. The University carefully reviewed its logistics to provide students with a safe and healthy learning environment while on campus for classes, lectures, laboratory sessions, and use of the testing centers and library. 

Faculty and Staff

Midwestern University faculty and staff returned to campus and clinic worksites at the end of the Spring 2021 Quarter. All faculty and staff continue to follow the health and safety protocols recommended by the University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Ongoing Plans

Midwestern University has implemented a careful and comprehensive plan, knowing that the well-being, health, and safety of our community comes first. We have returned to an active and thriving campus.
