Events Suspended at University
St. Jerome’s University will be following University of Waterloo (UW) protocols and suspending all events that are not vital to the academic mission of the university. The events are being cancelled out of caution and concern for the current COVID-19 changes rapidly happening around the world.
In an announcement made by the University of Waterloo’s President, Feridun Hamdullahpur, he confirmed the following:
“Classes, labs, courses, and final exams are vital to the academic mission of the University and will continue. We will monitor this situation and will send further updates in the coming hours and days.
We [UW] have asked instructors to consider alternatives to in-person instruction and examination, in case we need to make changes. We are sending separate information to instructors.”
Gatherings like courses, lectures, classes, and exams are vital to the academic mission of the University. This means that in many cases classes and exams will continue as planned. Some classes and exams may see changes to the way they are delivered. Sunday worship services at the university will continue as scheduled. St. Jerome’s University leadership is keeping this situation under review and will provide updates as they are available.
