Special Olympics Michigan has postponed its State Summer Games which are held on the campus of CMU. The games were originally scheduled for May 28-31.  Special Olympics is working on rescheduling and modifying the games with a tentative placeholder for the week of July 20.

In the release to the CMU students, faculty and staff, president Davies says university leaders are consulting daily to manage the university’s response to COVID-19. He says they are looking ahead to late summer and fall and will make additional decisions as they learn more about the spread of the virus. "This continues to be a rapidly evolving situation, and CMU will continue to make decisions based on guidance from state leaders and public health officials. In all our planning, our top priorities remain student success and our educational mission".
