The difficult decision was made to suspend the study abroad program for the spring 2021 semester. Given the current situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States and across the world, we believe that this decision is best for our students, keeping their safety our number one priority.
Students impacted by this decision have been notified and the staff of the Center for International Education is working with these students to see if we can support their desire to study abroad in a different semester. We are hopeful that we can resume our study abroad program in the fall 2021 semester but will continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation closely and make a decision as we get closer to that semester.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Bennie Williams, assistant dean of students or Brian Smith, director of the Center for International Education.
