COLLEGE STATION, TX — Texas A&M University has changed its schedule for classes on Monday, June 8 in recognition of the public viewing of George Floyd in Houston.

"In recognition of the public viewing for George Floyd on Monday and the Texas A&M University System full-day release of non-essential personnel, all scheduled class activities for Monday, June 8th at Texas A&M University will not be held," Provost and Executive Vice President Carol A. Fierke posted on Friday.

Since classes are online for the summer, faculty may record and make available in an asynchronous format any lectures that would have been presented during the regularly scheduled class period, according to the statement.

Any exam or other activity scheduled for Monday will be postponed and rescheduled for another day.
