Mitchell Hamline to teach completely online in the fall

After consulting with faculty and staff, President and Dean Anthony Niedwiecki announced the decision to teach remotely this fall in an email on Friday, July 24.
The text is below:
 
Dear faculty and staff,
I shared with you on Monday my growing concern about holding some classes on campus this fall. It was clear from your feedback that many of you share those concerns. I write today to announce that we will be teaching completely online in the fall. A decision about the spring will be made later this year.
I recognize and respect that some of you strongly prefer an in-person learning environment, and I apologize for the change in direction. Why are we switching gears a couple of months after we announced we would teach partly on campus?

People might not be able to flock to San Diego Comic Con this year in person, but the virtual convention, Comic-Con@Home, has been running all weekend, with countless panels, sneak peeks, and teasers and trailers for upcoming TV shows—but not many films, because let’s be honest: it’s not looking so good for major theatrical film releases in the fall.

HBO dropped the final trailer for Lovecraft Country, debuting August 16.

From the article:
The attack first came to the attention of researcher Bob Diachenko on Tuesday, when he discovered a database that stored user details of the UFO VPN had been destroyed.
