The inclusion of consecutive seven-week modules in each semester is one of the many shifts that Albion College has made in order to accommodate learning in the midst of COVID-19.
Given the gravity of the change it caused to a typical semester, the module system has created many discussions around campus centered around its controversial aspects. Those discussions, however, will soon cease.
In an email sent out on March 20, Albion College President Mathew Johnson announced that the college will be returning to a fully in-person semester in the fall of 2021.
“Our COVID-19 team is reviewing how we will change our existing COVID-related restrictions to ensure our campus remains healthy and safe as we plan for in-person instruction this fall,” said Johnson via email. “We will continue to monitor plans locally and regionally throughout the summer as we prepare. You can expect more information as we approach the fall semester, so continue to check Together Safely for the latest updates.”
