August 2020 ‘Out of the Blue’ focuses on MTSU community’s safe return to campus for fall

Middle Tennessee State University’s “Out of the Blue” TV magazine show is staying on course for our new academic year in the August 2020 edition, featuring discussions with three university leaders who’ve been working on our safe return to campus.

Join us to hear from:

• Dr. Eric Clark, medical director of MTSU’s Student Health Services, who reminds us of the requirements for social distancing and masks and has tips for students to keep themselves and others safer when they’re on campus.

• Dr. Mark Byrnes, university provost and chair of MTSU’s COVID-19 Strategic Task Force, who explains the five class formats MTSU students and faculty will be using to learn and teach this fall, including traditional, online, remote, hybrid and web-assisted courses.

• Dr. Deb Sells, vice president for student affairs and vice provost for enrollment and academic services at MTSU, who has updates on changes in on-campus living, including dorm move-in appointments and private dorm rooms, along with changes in activities and special events.

The show also is closed-captioned for viewers with hearing impairments.
