International Studies Institute COVID-19 Status

The International Studies Institute remains a functional, open degree program, but the physical offices on the 4th floor of Humanities will not be open to the public during the Fall 2020 semester. This closure means that almost all business will be conducted by phone, email, or internet meetings.

The only business done in-person will be that which cannot be completed remotely so will need to be specially arranged ahead of time to schedule a face-to-face appointment.

Contact the following people for any question regarding the following purposes:
