President Murray designated the formation of committees to oversee the reopening of the College focusing
on Academics, Campus Operations, and Student Success.
In addition to the work of the committees independently and collectively, the College planning discussions
have included extensive input from the Student Government Association, the Faculty Affairs Committee, the
Deans’ Council, and the Marist College Board of Trustees. In addition, dozens of individual members of the
community—students, faculty, staff, alumni—have provided important suggestions and critical insight into
this process. Marist College is deeply appreciative of the wide range of discussion resulting in our planning.
Academic Planning Committee
Charge: Prepare the College’s academic schools for a return to in-person operations, and
propose plans for necessary adjustments to instruction, research, and student support based on stakeholder
outreach to faculty and students. Additionally, the committee has prepared for contingencies should it not be
safe to return, in part or in full, to on-campus operations.
Charge: Prepare campus operations for a return to in-person instruction and residential academic experience, focusing specifically on health and well-being, support services, campus events and
activities, and campus spaces.
Student Affairs Committee
Charge: Prepare Student Affairs operations for a safe, high-quality environment for residential and commuter
student life at Marist.
