Message from the Chancellor

February 25, 2021 - Fall Semester Plans

Dear IU Southeast Faculty, Staff, and Students

As you all are likely aware, President McRobbie issued a letter yesterday afternoon outlining the plan for instruction and education on all the campuses of Indiana University for the upcoming fall semester. The plan is to return to mostly normal operations of the university and to resume in-person instruction on all IU campuses.

This decision was made based on advice from IU's medical and public health experts who have been leading the university's comprehensive and successful response to the COVID-19 pandemic for nearly a year now.

As detailed in President McRobbie’s letter, the Fall Semester will commence on Aug. 23, 2021, and continue without a break through Saturday, Nov. 20, 2021. We will have a week’s break for Thanksgiving, and then the Fall Semester will continue for a three-week period from Nov. 29, 2021, to Dec. 19, 2021. Depending on the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be necessary to revert again to a hybrid mode of instruction for this final three-week period. More details about how our campus will operate for the Fall Semester will be forthcoming.

This great news is a result of all of your hard work and strict adherence to IU’s health and safety guidelines. We need to continue to strictly observe IU’s policies, including masking, social distancing, avoiding crowds and groups, personal hygiene, and complying with regular mitigation testing, that have proved so effective.

As we have learned this past year, this health crisis is constantly changing, so please check your email for further messages as plans are confirmed. As always, I could not be more proud of the IU Southeast community. You continue to show patience, understanding, and a commitment to keeping us all safe and healthy. Your actions are paying off, and together we are moving forward.
