In our monthly program Engaging the Community with Missouri State University President Clif Smart, we discuss the university's reopening of campus during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Listen below as Smart discusses the factors he and the MSU Board of Governors are keeping a close eye on, including the criteria that could potentially lead to a "pause" on in-person learning.  Those factors include COVID-19 case data, testing resources, advice from local, state and federal health officials, local hospital capability, and above all, safety of students, faculty and staff, Smart said.
