Morrison Tech Plans To Reopen Campus This Fall
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our lives, threatened our well-being, and inflicted severe economic loss. Leaving us all to feel anxious about what the future holds. But this unimaginable hardship brings with it an opportunity for the college to affirm our fundamental values and forge a future brighter than ever. As a college we will confront this crisis directly, with honesty and with informed courage. It is from this perspective that Morrison Tech announces plans to return to person to person classes for the fall semester. As of now, classes are scheduled to begin on Monday, August 24th.
While we cannot eliminate all risk, we will mitigate it in every reasonable way we can. The rural location of the college, along with the choice to keep a smaller enrollment than other colleges, places the college in a better place to handle social distancing along with other precautions. Officials are working on guidelines to ensure students, educators and employees can safely work, learn and live on campus.
“We have an obligation to our students, our state, and society to continue our important work. As we navigate the coming months, the real measure of our success is not that we just get through this pandemic, but that we emerge from it stronger. I am confident that our Morrison Tech family is up to this task, and I join each of you in eager anticipation of being together again, safely, this fall” President Scott stated.
* COVID 19 may have affected students and parents’ ability to work due to illness or shutdown. These changes may raise uncertainty on your ability to afford a Morrison Tech education. If this applies to your family, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 815-772-7218 x203. Special circumstances will be reviewed and, perhaps, financial aid may be adjusted. If changes are made to your financial aid, you will need to provide documentation for all changes.

Morrison Tech Innovation Center
The Innovation Center will have it all. Cutting-edge additive manufacturing equipment, robotics and electronics labs, a construction technology lab, traditional manufacturing equipment, wood working and metal working equipment, welding equipment, and casting space (both cold and hot) will come together to provide almost limitless options.
Build to serve four primary clients. The center will foster collaboration and creativity. Students, businesses, artisans, and entrepreneurs alike will benefit from a place where ideas are explored, dreams are pursued, and discoveries are made.
This unique space will provide the capabilities to create one of a kind parts, large precast concrete projects, or even small production runs of components or products.
Morrison Tech recognizes the need for the Innovation Center in our region, and understands the profound impact this center could have on schools and businesses in both Morrison and the surrounding communities.
