Coronavirus Update: Transition to Distance Learning

Alert Type: Information

Start Time: Mar 7, 2020 @ 4:00pm

End Time: Mar 30, 2020 @ 12:00am

Status: OK

Please see the latest campus wide announcement here: www.plu.edu/chws/coronavirus/messages-coronavirus/

PLU leaders have spent the last few weeks learning about the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, and preparing for how it might affect our campus. As of this writing, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at PLU. We continue to receive guidance from local, state and national health organizations that the risks of contracting the virus for healthy individuals remains low.

Campus will remain open. However, out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to transition all regular classes to a distance-learning format, effective Tuesday, March 10, until the end of spring break on March 30. (The continuation of experiential classes such as internships, student teaching, and clinical placements will be determined in consultation with the dean or chair of the program.) Classes will be cancelled on Monday, March 9, to allow faculty to finish developing materials appropriate for remote learning. Should we receive guidance from public-health officials to extend distance learning beyond March 30, we will make announcements accordingly.
