(WXYZ) — Wayne State plans to hold a virtual town hall Thursday afternoon on its return-to-campus plan for the fall semester.

Beginning at 3 p.m., people can ask questions and submit comments.

University President M. Roy Wilson wrote a detailed letter to the Warrior community, outlining his plan for students and staff to return to campus safely this fall.

About 20 percent of classes will be done the traditional way, in-person on campus. Just below half will be done remotely and about 2 percent will be a combination of both.

Additionally, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, changes will be made to campus dining and retail stores on campus.
