Updated: March 18, 2020

Along with the instruction and learning experience, safety is a top priority for our students, faculty and staff. We DO NOT have a case of COVID-19 on our campus; however, to ensure that we do not compromise anyone’s health and limit the spread of COVID-19, we made the following decisions:

Safety Measures

  • Engaged a cleaning company to facilitate the overall cleaning and sanitization of our campus.
  • Enhanced daily cleaning protocols.
  • Followed guidelines established by state and federal officials with regards to social distancing to ensure the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and campus-at-large.
  • Effective Wednesday, March 18, LeMoyne-Owen College campus is closed to the public. We will continue to have 24-HR security and will implement protocols for limited public access to the campus.

Remote Learning

  • Effective Monday, March 30, 2020 we will shift from face-to-face instruction to remote course offerings for the remainder of the spring semester.
  • Faculty will return Monday, March 23, 2020 to implement remote learning for their courses.
  • Faculty will communicate to the students on their class rosters and provide them with the necessary instruction and materials to complete the requirements of their courses.

Student Housing:

Students currently residing in campus housing should begin moving out their personal belongings immediately. Students who will be returning when spring break ends on March 30, 2020, should begin making alternative housing arrangements and be prepared to move or store your remaining items from your dormitory room by April 1, 2020.

Postponement of Major Events

  • As you may be aware, large group activities are to be delayed for at least the next 8 weeks. This will impact our Presidential Gala, originally scheduled for April 26, 2020, which will be postponed until the fall. More information will be forthcoming.
  • We have also cancelled Honors Convocation, scheduled for April 8, as well as any concerts the choirs and music students may have had scheduled.
  • We have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone our May 9, 2020 commencement ceremony as well as any associated events until further notice. This includes Lantern Service and any alumni reunion activities usually associated with graduation weekend. Please check and social media for updates.
