COVID-19 Update: Event Cancellations

March 16, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and per guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Jackson College will postpone all upcoming scheduled events until further notice, including commencement.

“We realize this is disappointing and may cause inconveniences,” said Cindy Allen, vice president for talent and administration.
