UWM to suspend in-person classes after spring break, until April 10
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will suspend in-person instruction after spring break until April 10. Classes will be offered through alternate means, including online.
The university announced Tuesday that it was extending its spring break to two weeks, from March 15-29. No classes, including online classes, will be taught during that time. Beginning Monday, March 30, online classes will resume and in-person classes will be taught online or delivered through other, alternate means. The two-week spring break will give faculty and instructors time to prepare for this.
Alternate instruction will continue through at least Friday, April 10. The hope is to resume in-person instruction on Monday, April 13, but the timeline depends on health conditions. Students will receive at least one week’s notice before in-person instruction resumes.
Students who live in University Housing are encouraged to return home or to an off-campus residence from March 15 to April 10. However, residence halls will remain open for students who need to stay on campus.
All three UWM campuses will remain open during spring break and the weeks of alternate instruction, and university employees should report to work unless advised differently by their supervisor.
Most university-sponsored events and gatherings of more than 50 people will be canceled from March 15 through April 10. The provost and vice chancellor for finance and administration may allow select events to be held as scheduled.
This continues to be a rapidly evolving situation. The latest updates are available on the university’s coronavirus website.
