MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (March 12, 2020) — Based on the changing dynamics and heightened levels of risk of the coronavirus, Milligan College will extend its current spring break until March 20 and transition to online classes through April 5 for traditional undergraduate programs and some graduate programs.
“We understand this decision will have a profound impact on us all,” said Milligan President Dr. Bill Greer. “Ultimately, our decision is grounded in our responsibility for the well-being of the Milligan community and to support the international attempt to mitigate the further spread of this virus. We also aim to ensure our students continue to receive a high quality learning experience during this unprecedented situation.”
Beginning Thursday, March 19, and continuing through April 3, the campus will be closed to external visitors and guests.
All staff who are able to perform their job duties remotely should work remotely March 19 through April 3. Those who continue to work on-campus should comply with social distancing expectations.
Milligan’s academic dean’s office is in close communication with all students currently engaged in off-campus study and are working ceaselessly to ensure their safety and quick return.
