Dear Students,

Though we are still under the stay-at-home order from Gov. J.B. Pritzker, we are actively planning protocols we intend to put in place once employees who have been working remotely can begin returning to on-site work. We are doing this so we can be prepared for in-person fall instruction.

Fall Instruction

  • We have not yet made a decision about the delivery of fall instruction, but we are actively engaged in planning for a number of contingencies.
  • Our goal is to ensure that we do all we can to maximize our students’ educational experiences.
  • We firmly believe the residential experience is an important part of the growth and development of our students, and it is our goal to return to that model as soon as possible in a manner that respects and prioritizes everyone’s safety and well-being.
  • We recognize that families need time to plan for the fall term.
  • We anticipate a formal decision and announcement on fall instruction by the middle of June.

We will be in touch as soon as we have more information. Until then, thank you for your continued patience. You are the life of the campus and I am eager to see you back in Champaign-Urbana.


Robert J. Jones
