Dear Faculty and Staff,

The University constantly monitors the public health emergency surrounding the spread of coronavirus and continues to make necessary changes in guidelines and policies that are in your best interest and that of KCU.

In our ongoing effort to protect the safety and well-being of our campus community, KCU has extended the date restricting both off-site university-sponsored events and on-campus events to May 31, 2020. Also, until that date, University-sponsored travel will continue to be limited to essential travel between the Kansas City and Joplin campuses. We will re-evaluate this policy on a regular basis and may make changes as the situation develops.

Whenever possible, we encourage sponsors to replace on-site events with a virtual experience. Our University Events staff and others continue to find creative and alternative options. If you would like assistance with planning a virtual event, please contact Martha Lawrence, manager of University Events, , for guidance.

As always, we thank each of you for your ongoing support in protecting the health and well-being of our community campus.
