Today, the United States federal government declared a national emergency in response to the novel coronavirus.

We currently have no confirmed cases of novel coronavirus at Morrison University However, due to the rapid spread of the disease, administrators have recommended that we take enhanced measures to ensure the safety of our campus communities, support the effective operation of the university, and contribute to managing this global pandemic. As of today, we have authorized the following:

All Classes are Online for Remainder of the Semester/Term

All classes, will remain online through the end of the spring semester/term. There are no changes to spring break schedules. Students will continue to receive information from their faculty with details on how coursework will be conducted.

Student Support

The university will continue to offer robust student support throughout the transition.

Campus Operations

Effective Monday, March 16, and until further notice, Morrison University employees are expected to work from home unless they have been designated by their supervisors as essential or emergency employees.


All university events are suspended, postponed, or will be moved online for the remainder of the spring semester/term. Planning for spring commencement ceremonies is continuing, and a final decision will be made at a later date.

Travel Restrictions

All university-sponsored student and employee travel, both international and domestic, scheduled for the remainder of the semester/term will be cancelled unless approved by senior leaders.

We realize you may have many additional questions. Please know that we are working diligently to accommodate this transition for our university community, and we will provide additional information as soon as possible.

This continues to be a rapidly-evolving situation. Please continue to monitor your campus email.
