Message from the Chancellor

January 26, 2021 - IU Southeast Campus Update

Dear IU Southeast Community,

Congratulations on a successful first week back. As we enter the second week of the spring semester, I want to remind you that in-person classes will resume on Feb. 8. While I am excited to see you all back on campus, please remember that we all share common obligations to our campus community, family, and community at large:

  • DO NOT come to campus if you feel ill
  • Practice physical distancing,
  • Always wear your mask, and
  • Take all necessary precautions to keep our students, faculty, staff and your family safe.

The vaccination clinic on the IU Southeast campus is doing quite well. So far, more than 2,000 Floyd County residents have been vaccinated at the IU Southeast site, and the Floyd County Health Department is expecting to administer another 1000 vaccinations this week. I continue to be very proud of the hard work and dedication from our students and faculty in the School of Nursing and their assistance with the clinic and testing on our campus.

Remember that you now have the option to schedule a free asymptomatic COVID-19 test on campus. Time slots are limited; if there are no appointments available, check back the following week.

Additionally, there will now be recurring Ask Aaron webinars for the regional campuses on Thursdays throughout the semester. The first webinar is this Thursday, Jan. 28, at 3 p.m. Students, faculty, and staff can have their COVID-19-related questions answered by an expert, Aaron Carroll, M.D., M.S., Professor of Pediatrics, and one of the leaders of IU's COVID-19 response team. Register for this session here.

This virus continues to challenge us, but as we look to the future, I am confident that we will continue to persevere.
