Out of an abundance of caution, McNeese will immediately move to modified operations. Face-to-face course delivery will transition to remote delivery, including online format effective Wednesday, March 18. We may continue this through the end of the spring semester.
The University will remain open with modified operations in some areas. Faculty and staff are expected to continue to work normal hours. With classes going online, student workers should discuss the possibility of modifying work schedules where possible.
Residence halls will remain open, Holbrook Computer Lab, Frazar Library and Rowdy’s Cafeteria will continue normal operating hours.
Per guidance from the CDC, events expected to draw more than 250 participants are cancelled through March 30. Other meetings of groups of 50 or more may be cancelled. This guidance may be extended depending on how the Coronavirus outbreak develops over the next few weeks.
Yesterday, the Southland Conference cancelled all athletic competitions through March 30. Our athletic teams will continue to practice and conduct workouts during this time.
The health and safety of our faculty, staff and students are our primary concern. Any faculty or staff member that are in one of the high-risk categories identified by the CDC should contact their dean or supervisor for additional directions.
Effective immediately it is imperative all faculty, staff and students frequently check their McNeese email account. Updates to campus operations, scheduled events and other information will be sent via McNeese email. Guidance and resources will also be posted to the McNeese Emergency Communications webpage at www.mcneese.edu/emergency.
