The University of Wisconsin will be switching its summer schedule to an online-only program, to allow students and staff to stay home amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
UW–Madison is expanding online offerings this summer to include more than 300 courses while in-person Summer Term courses are suspended due to the COVID-19 crisis. The decision was made with the safety of students in mind. https://t.co/jT6vdtuOnu— UW-Madison (@UWMadison) April 2, 2020
Weeks ago, UW moved to an online-only method of learning for students as the outbreak struck the United States.
“We know this is a challenging time for students, and we are here to help them continue their studies and advance toward graduation,” says Associate Dean for Summer Term Aphra Mednick in a university statement.
“The decision to suspend in-person instruction was made with the safety of our students in mind. We already had a robust online offering and in response, we are offering even more online courses than ever before so students can continue their academic progress.”
