The health and safety of the USI campus community is our top priority.
The rapidly changing and escalating outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States and around the globe presents a unique set of challenges for the University of Southern Indiana as well as our community. The University is monitoring the situation daily and is following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Indiana State Department of Health and local healthcare providers. As the number of cases in the United States continues to grow, the University administration is convening regularly with key individuals, departments and resource providers to coordinate a plan of action to keep our community safe and allow classes and business operations to function as normally as possible. We will continue to update the campus community as more information, guidance and resources become available.
