CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement FAQ

Our current plan is to offer more in-person activities this year, including face-to-face classes, public performances and other on-campus events — providing students, faculty, staff and visitors with the best CCM experience possible while maintaining the health and wellness of our community.

The health and safety measures outlined on UC’s Public Health website provide the operational framework that CCM will follow this fall. As we move forward together as a community, let’s also remember our campus practices may need to change as conditions develop based on guidance from the CDC and UC’s physician-led COVID response team.

CCM is also providing regular updates through this website and through our email newsletter. Subscribe to get the latest CCM news, performance videos and other campus updates delivered directly to your inbox.
