CHARLESTON, Ill. (WCIA) — Eastern Illinois University officials have decided to proceed with remote learning for the rest of the Spring 2020 semester.

“This decision, though difficult, was made in response to state and federal best-practice suppression and mitigation strategies to help contain the COVID-19 virus. The health and safety of our students and employees is our top priority,” said EIU President David Glassman and Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Jay Gatrell.

The University will remain open, regardless of canceling in-person classes.

This includes residence and dining centers for those choosing to remain on campus, the library, our student services offices (such as the Health Center, Counseling Center, Career Center, Advising Center) and our general business offices.
