The college recently released a list of precautions that it is taking which includes extending spring break a week, moving to remote learning until the end of the semester and suspending a college sponsored travel.
Read the list of precautions they are taking below:
- Spelman College is extending Spring Break by one week through Sunday, March 22.
- Spelman will move to remote learning beginning Monday, March 23, enabling students to complete their academic program off-campus. Academic programs will be offered remotely until the end of the spring semester.
- Spelman is suspending ALL college-sponsored and college-related faculty, student and staff international travel until at least June 30, 2020.
