We’re adapting to the evolving situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic here at MSU Billings, as most of you are likely doing at home. In response to growing transmission concerns in Montana, we acted quickly to protect our Yellowjackets on campus. We shifted courses online, canceled or postponed events, arranged for non-essential staff to work remotely, and requested that students return home to isolate themselves with their families (if possible) during these uncertain times.
As the spring semester draws to a close, it saddens me to see the grounds of our university so empty. I look forward to welcoming MSU Billings students, faculty, and staff back to our beautiful campus very soon. In the meantime, however, we are distancing ourselves from one another to slow the spread of this disease. These efforts ensure we protect our most vulnerable from illness until the threat is eliminated.
Yellowjackets worldwide can stay informed of our efforts to combat COVID-19 on campus. Visit the COVID-19 Central resource on our website and watch for updates on our online news page. In addition, please tune in to my weekly Check-in with the Chancellor video series as I answer questions that arise.
I am very proud of our campus community’s hard work and dedication in making our temporary situation at MSU Billings work well. We are in this together, and we will overcome these difficult times united as the ‘Jacket family across the globe.
