MarCom Reminder: Review Titans Together

The Marketing & Communications Department (MarCom) would like to remind all students and employees to take time each day and review the University’s Titans Together website. Detroit Mercy receives a number of questions each day from faculty, staff, students and parents, which are provided to our institutional experts for responses. These questions and responses are added to the FAQ page to provide greater clarity regarding the fall semester on our three campuses and communicate information faculty, staff, students, parents and community members need to remain healthy and safe.

For students, the COVID-19 Information for Current Students page offers daily operational information about what you can expect when you return to our campuses.

Be safe, Mask up and Go Titans!
