In light of the continued community spread of COVID-19 across the U.S. and around the world, Indiana University is extending remote teaching through the end of the spring 2020 semester. To help accommodate the adjustment, spring break has been extended an additional week, with remote instruction beginning Monday, March 30.
This page will track resources available to students to assist in this transition to remote learning.
