Bloomington-Normal COVID-19 Information

Based on the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, as well as the current spread of the coronavirus in Illinois, Illinois Wesleyan has determined that our best course of action will be to extend our plans for remote instruction beyond our extended Spring Break until the end of the semester and for May Term, which will also be offered remotely.

Most campus buildings will remain closed. Campus employees are working remotely and responding to emails and voicemails.
