Week in Review: Week of Aug. 17, 2020

August 21, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

Change is in the air in Ann Arbor – and this week, Headlines helped faculty and staff navigate that change as effectively as possible.

For instance, with fall approaching and a lot of unknowns lying ahead, the newsletter gave readers tools and resources to help them protect their mental health. There was also a rundown of parking and traffic alterations to be put into effect for Student Move-In 2020; and employees learned about the Department of Communication, the team behind all of the messages that keep people informed at Michigan Medicine.

Find those stories and more as part of the Week in Review!
