Dear Mizzou community,
The university has decided it is in the best interest of our community to postpone Family Weekend until a later date.
I know this is very disappointing for many of you. I’m the father of a college student myself, so I know what it’s like to be separated from family.
We are cautiously optimistic that we may be able to reschedule the event for the spring. We will keep you posted on developments.
Please understand that this was not an easy decision to make, but we need to do all we can to protect our students, your Tigers, and all members of the Mizzou community.
Hosting Family Weekend events at this time would run counter to university policies and procedures aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19, such as those limiting events to no more than 20 people and limiting travel for all community members.
I’m sorry I don’t have better news for you at this time. Please hang in there and remember: It’s on all of us working together to slow the spread of this virus.
In the meantime, I want to reassure you that we have many campus resources in place to help keep your Tigers safe and healthy during these stressful and anxiety-inducing times.
Please call me or send me an email anytime you have any questions or concerns. I’ll be happy to discuss them with you.
Take care, stay safe, wash your hands and wear a mask!
Dr. Bill Stackman
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
