As of Monday, March 23, all Lindenwood University faculty and staff will be working from home and all on-campus offices will be closed to the public and university employees. Lindenwood personnel and offices will be available for business by telephone and email to provide continuity in university operations and student support services.
The measure is the latest taken by the university to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the community and is in keeping with stay-at-home orders by local governments and with the actions of other institutions of higher education in the region.
In recent days, the university has also switched all classes to a virtual format through May 17 and has moved residential students out of university housing. Lindenwood has also cancelled all university events, including athletics and performances at the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts, until further notice.
“Our top priority is keeping our students, faculty, and staff safe, continuing to provide a Lindenwood education, and fulfilling Lindenwood's mission of service to the broader community,” said Lindenwood President John Porter. “Throughout this evolving process, we have worked closely with public health officials to take the most appropriate actions for the Lindenwood community.”
