Brown University, the University of Pennsylvania, George Washington University, Dickinson College and others are among the list of those who have reconsidered. Meanwhile, some universities are committed to staying the course. Betsy Foresman has more.

UW-Madison facing backlash for reopening

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has announced that in-person classes will be allowed to resume this fall, but faculty and staff are demanding the university remain fully online.

Betsy has the details.

Michigan State's malware troubles

Users who made purchases from Michigan State University's online shop between last October and June may have had their credit card numbers stolen, administrators announced this week. The cyberattack, which compromised the credit card information of about 2,600 customers, is the second malware infection at the institution this year, following a ransomware attack discovered in May. The university's technology department is now working with law enforcement to investigate the incident and says the administrators of the website will undergo "advanced" security awareness training. Colin Wood has the story.


What will tech look like in classrooms this fall?

For students returning to college campuses this fall, the semester will look a little different, from sparser student populations to new classroom technologies. At many universities reopening their campuses, like Penn State Schuylkill, this will mean rearranging furniture and installing new classroom tools like tablet-enabled podiums that will simultaneously broadcast written information to students in the classroom and those learning remotely. Chancellor Patrick M. Jones said upgrades like these are "paramount" to ensure student health and safety during the pandemic. See how the fall is shaping up.
