March 27, 2020—It has been quite a week. Thank you for your extraordinary patience as we work as a community to address this fast-moving and complex public health crisis. I understand this has been a difficult period as each of us tries our best to manage our obligations to our students, as well as our care for others, technology challenges and responding to this rapidly changing situation. Know that your efforts are appreciated by myself, the entire university leadership team and most importantly by our students. I share this message from a student about Dr.
I am deeply saddened to share with you that we have experienced the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Denton. This means we now must move to the next phase of our business continuity plan. In order to protect the health and safety of our community, all on-campus instruction, student services and research will be restricted to only essential activities by close of business Monday March 23rd, where possible, and by Tuesday March 24th, at the latest.
March 18, 2020—Thank you! I cannot fully express my gratitude for all of your efforts to rapidly move to alternative delivery of instruction. Our goal is to maintain the continuity of our students’ educational experience in these difficult circumstances.
March 14, 2020 — I know that each of you cares for our students and many of them are reaching out to you asking about the status of their classes. The university plans to issue a communication to every student on Thursday March 19th with the details about their entire schedule.
March 13, 2020 — I will start by saying thank you in advance for all of the effort you will be putting in over the coming weeks to ensure our students continue to learn and grow under your guidance. We are facing a monumental challenge – one that our nation’s universities are taking on in good spirits. Our community is committed to doing everything we can to support each other during this difficult time.

In recent days we have seen continued global spread of the coronavirus, with a presumptive case being reported in our region.

This year, we have several priorities and successes to report:
Dear Faculty and Academic Staff,
