All four University of Nebraska campuses announced today that as COVID-19 continues to spread, they will transition to remote-access learning after spring break in order to help protect the health and safety of their communities.
UNK will meet face-to-face next week but is moving to virtual, online or alternative instruction beginning the first day of classes following spring break, beginning March 30.
UNL and UNO have canceled classes from March 16-20. After spring break, all spring semester classes will be taught remotely and will not be taught in-person.
UNL is also suspending all non-essential university-sponsored domestic and international travel through the end of the semester. All summer study-abroad programs through June 30 are canceled.
The university is encouraging students to return to their homes if possible. For students unable to go home, the campuses will support them in the residence halls.
Based on guidance from the NCAA and the Big Ten Conference, Husker Athletics has announced that home sports competitions will be closed to the public effective immediately. Games will take place as scheduled but will be limited to student-athletes, coaches, essential personnel, credentialed media and immediate family members of the participating teams.
