The Governor has announced that all K-12 schools in PA will close starting Monday, March 16 through March 29, in order to limit social interactions to help control the spread of the coronavirus. In keeping with that strategy, and in the interest of the health and safety of all Pennsylvanians, I am directing that no in-person instruction occur at our 14 universities during that same two-week period.

We encourage students, faculty, and staff to be in contact with their home universities–their best source of direct information.

In the days and weeks ahead, it's important for us to come together, exercise patience, and collaborate with one another as we confront our collective challenges. This is going to take everybody doing their part for the sake of our students.​
