Indiana University goes virtual for the remainder of the semester; spring break extended

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, officials at IU are taking steps to ensure the safety of their students and staff.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Just days after announcing campuses would suspend face-to-face teaching for two weeks following spring break, Indiana University officials have announced they will now move remote teaching for the remainder of the semester.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, President Michael McRobbie says spring break has also been extended a week to provide IU students travel flexibility given the recent travel restrictions. 

They say it will also give their faculty a chance to prepare for completing the semester via virtual teaching.

Spring break for IU students March 14 through March 29.

This applies to all 9 IU campuses.
