Fall 2020 > Updates > March 13, 2020—Updated student information
Thank you for all you are doing to adapt to the changes to Winter Quarter finals and Spring Quarter courses that President Esteban announced earlier this week. During these extraordinary times, DePaul is doing everything we can to answer your questions as soon as we are able. The COVID-19 situation changes daily, and your health and well-being are our priorities. Each and every student is important to this university. Support is available for you as DePaul implements plans to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
DePaul’s COVID-19 Updates and Guidelines website is a comprehensive resource, we are reaching out to all
students in the interest of clarifying some common questions we’re hearing from
Many U.S. universities, including others in the Chicago
area, are taking similar steps to reduce the density of people on their
campuses and prevent the spread of COVID-19. While we may not see each other in
person next quarter, we will remain a community. We are proud of all the ways we’ve
witnessed students providing each other emotional support in the last week, and,
knowing our student body, we expect it will continue. We also appreciate the
compassion you’re showing one another. COVID-19 can affect people of all races
and ages, and racism, xenophobia and age discrimination have no place at this
You will hear from DePaul regularly to keep us connected and
to keep you informed about the university’s response to COVID-19.
