Announcement regarding event cancellations

The health and well-being of our community is of the utmost importance. As a precautionary measure and to reinforce the importance of social distancing during this time, effective immediately all events and gatherings with estimated attendees of more than 100 are canceled including events at the Chester Fritz Auditorium, Hyslop and other University-owned facilities. This decision will remain in effect through Sunday, April 5, 2020. Events that are currently scheduled or planned with less than 100 must be re-reviewed and approved by the unit’s vice president. We encourage everyone to use Zoom or other electronic means of meeting whenever possible.
