Transitioning to Remote Learning for Spring Quarter

Today, we are announcing new steps in service of these goals that the current extraordinary circumstances require.   We will be acting collectively to prevent and slow the spread of the virus.  We are committed to maintaining University research and daily operations, and ensuring that all students can realize their academic objectives, but we understand that doing so will present new challenges. We extend our appreciation in advance to our faculty, students, staff, and the University community for their collective efforts to fulfil the distinctive mission of the University in today’s deeply challenging environment.

The University of Chicago is moving to remote learning for undergraduate and graduate classes for the entire Spring Quarter of 2020, beginning on Monday, March 30, the first day of the Spring Quarter. Extensive preparations are in process under the Provost’s leadership, and we will provide detailed guidance over the next week about remote teaching.
