Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
March 14, 2020
A message from Provost Ingram
As the situation with COVID-19 evolves, I’m writing to affirm our continued commitment to you, our NIU students. In light of yesterday’s announcement by Gov. Pritzker, we want to share some additional information.
We recognize that a number of you are responsible for school-aged children and elderly friends or relatives. Balancing commitments to your studies, families and communities is always a challenge, even more so in the current environment. Please rest assured, we fully understand during this time that your personal well-being and your ability to care for anyone counting on you is critical. Our faculty members will strive to be flexible and responsive to your needs.
You received information yesterday about student services (housing, dining, counseling services, etc.), and you will receive information Monday about academic services (tutoring, advising, etc.). We will continue to update you on how to access the services you need.
With that in mind, please continue to read your email and pay attention to the NIU coronavirus website. We appreciate your patience. I am confident that, as a Huskie community, we will show our resilience and persistence.
