Viterbo University suspends in-person instruction



Viterbo University announced it will suspend face-to-face classes next week, March 16-20, as Coronavirus evolves across the United States.

In a statement, Viterbo President Glena Temple said the measures are in the interest of the health and safety of all Viterbo community members and following Friday’s recommendations by Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers.

Temple said classes will resume in an online format March 23-April 8. Students have Easter break April 9-13.

“We will re-evaluate the situation in early April about resuming face to face classes on April 14,” Temple said.

Second-half bachelor completion online courses scheduled to begin Monday, March 16 or other graduate or undergraduate online courses currently underway have not been suspended and will be held as scheduled.

International travel, including study abroad trips, are suspended until May 31.

Athletic events, competitions and practices are suspended beginning immediately (with the exception of those teams currently finishing their spring break travel) through April 8. The remainder of the season will be evaluated at a later date.

All Fine Arts Center events are canceled from March 16–April 8.
