COVID-19 Update March 20, 2020

"We are Pilots. We have comfort in the storms. We have experienced and will experience the sovereignty of God."

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the decision for all classes to remain online through the end of the spring semester, in response to the COVID-19 crisis. This decision was not made lightly, and we grieve with students, faculty and staff over the loss of the on-campus experience.

For seniors who meet criteria to graduate, your diploma will be mailed to you in mid-May. The May 2nd commencement ceremony is postponed until a future date when public health authorities indicate conditions support a public gathering on campus.

With limited exceptions, all students should plan to move out of their residence halls by Sat., March 28 at noon. (Carry out meals will be available at the Dining Commons throughout the week). We encourage students to move out as soon as possible.

With recent developments, we have also made the decision to require only essential personnel on campus through April 3. Those employees determined to be essential will be notified by their area vice president. All other employees who are able to work from home will be asked to do so from Mon., March 23 through Friday, April 3.

We know students and families will have more questions, we are working as quickly as possible to gather information and will post additional details on our page as it becomes available. You can also call 574.807.7400 or text 574.217.4387 for more information.

Please view a special video message from President Chenoweth on our Coronavirus page.
