Coronavirus Campus Update

Dear Students,

Together we are experiencing unprecedented changes in our local and national state of affairs related to the novel coronavirus infection labeled COVID-19. Our first concern remains with our students and all members of our campus community as we collectively navigate this new territory. 

In light of the State of Oregon’s efforts to manage the complex and rapidly changing conditions, UWS continues to take proactive steps to protect our community. As of today, there are no reported cases of COVID-19 infection among UWS students and employees. While the situation is changing daily and is expected to remain fluid over the foreseeable future, we are implementing strategic measures to address this rapidly-evolving situation as thoughtfully and comprehensively as possible.

Please be aware that the UWS campus and clinic remains open and operational during normal business hours. Student schedules for clinic have not changed. 

UWS administration and faculty are working together to transition on-campus final exams to alternative delivery for next week. Faculty members and deans are reviewing course finals on a case-by-case basis to determine if student competencies can be assessed without administering a final exam. If any of your exams are cancelled or transitioned to an alternative format, you will be informed by your instructors by 5 p.m., today, Friday, March 13. Please monitor your email for updates. All College of Graduate Studies online final exams will take place as scheduled in webCampus.

Please visit our coronavirus resource page to learn how COVID-19 may impact students and the precautions UWS is taking to reduce risks. Please read this information carefully and continue to monitor your student email account closely over the next several weeks. Emerging information will be communicated by email.  
As we encourage steps to provide social distancing and minimize the risk of infection, we believe the best way to remain resilient is to be sensitive to each others’ needs and to work together. Thank you for looking out for your peers and colleagues. 

If you have university-related questions or concerns about COVID-19, please email
