In the announcement issued today, CNU said they will switch on online distance education for the remainder of the semester effective on Monday, March 16. The current semester ends on May 15. 

All laboratory and in-person student education activities on campus will be canceled and rescheduled to later dates. The campus remains open for all essential functions and central oversight of education mission.

“This is a public health crisis that requires concerted, community-wide efforts to slow the spread of the virus,” Dr. Cheung, president and CEO of CNU said in the statement. “Our goal is to use technology to reduce potential exposure and infection, while maintaining continuity of education.”


Cheung said the University has tested the distance education modality and the feedback from both faculty and students was positive.  The action is consistent with recommendations of public health officials to minimize large group meetings and close contact in areas such as classrooms, in addition to frequent hand-washing and other personal hygiene measures.
