Cross told the university’s Board of Regents on Thursday that UW was working on various scenarios based on rapidly changing conditions.

The flagship UW-Madison campus announced Thursday that it was moving all in-person summer classes scheduled to start in May to online only.

Cross says plans for the fall will be made in the coming weeks based on an array of ever-changing assumptions.
