We are #JUStrong! Help us enhance and expand the Nellie Student Support Fund: https://www.ju.edu/nellie/ (Link in bio) --- Many members of our concerned Jacksonville University family have reached out to ask how all of us can help current students cope with this disruptive situation. The Nellie fund is 100% dedicated to providing critical monetary support to students facing extreme and immediate financial need.
Jacksonville University is having two virtual events tomorrow. The first is at noon and is a virtual town hall with senior leaders and experts from Jacksonville University.

Online Learning Extended ----- Consistent with new guidance issued by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis today, Jacksonville University is extending the period of online teaching and learning for the remainder of the Spring semester and through the first Summer term, ending June 20th, as we practice social distancing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. ---- For highly specialized fields with applied learning requirements, such as aviation, the fine arts, graduate and undergraduate health care programs and orthodontics, Provost Sapienza and the Academic Affairs team are working closely with Deans and program directors to develop a safe path forward for students to continue their training. As decisions are finalized in the coming days, the University will communicate next steps with students, faculty and staff. ---- Students are now strongly encouraged to return home to their families as they complete this semester online. We recognize there may be barriers that prevent some students from returning home, particularly students from cities and countries with widespread community outbreaks. Therefore, students have the option to stay on campus. You should know that we will relocate all remaining students to a residence hall on the south end of campus, while still maintaining the recommended social distancing protocol. This allows us to better position resources and residential space on campus in the unlikely event we must respond to any COVID-19 cases on our campus. ---- The University recognizes the inconvenience this decision may cause our students and their families. We have calculated the estimated savings from variable costs per student and have decided to go beyond our contractual obligations, in the spirit of good faith, by offering a special room and board credit to students who choose to move out of the residence halls. Residential Life will send an email with more instructions on this special credit, check-out procedures and options for collecting personal belongings left in the residence halls. ---- Please check your emails or Facebook for the rest of this update. There is also a website link in our bio.
