Novel Coronavirus

From ABOR Chair Larry E. Penley

"The health and wellness of students, faculty, staff and visitors is always the highest priority for the Arizona Board of Regents. In light of the growing threat posed by COVID-19, novel coronavirus, and consistent with Gov. Ducey’s declaration of a public health emergency, the board is working closely with university leaders regarding steps that can be taken to minimize risk and as each president makes decisions about their campus communities in light of public health concerns. We are also in communication with local, state and federal officials regarding the latest information and public health guidance.

“Arizona State University announced today that they have made the decision to transition in-person classes to online instruction wherever possible, effective March 16. More information is available here. The University of Arizona also announced this evening that they are delaying the start of classes to March 18 and moving from in-person instruction to online instruction wherever possible. More information about UArizona is available here. Northern Arizona University announced that effective Monday, March 23, the university will move to online instruction for at least two weeks. More information is available here.

"Each of the universities provide news and official announcements about COVID-19 as it pertains to the campus’ communities on their websites. Please visit the universities’ websites for the latest information and official announcements. The board will also issue updates through its website to keep the public informed.”
