As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, we realize that you undoubtedly have questions and concerns. I would therefore like to update you on the latest developments at LIM College.
Though there are currently no cases of COVID-19 among LIM College students, faculty or staff, we believe taking these proactive steps is in the best interests of our community. The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our primary concern and the topmost guide throughout all of our decision-making.
Click here to read a communication that was sent to the LIM College community today. In it, you will see that we are taking steps we believe will protect everyone’s health, while maintaining students' academic progress and continuity. Most notably:
- Tues. March 10 will be the last day of in-person classes this week. As of Wed. March 11, LIM will transition to holding classes remotely for all students. Next week (March 16-20) is Spring Break and LIM College will be closed as scheduled. After the end of Spring Break (March 23), we will resume remotely holding classes and conducting operations through at least March 27.
- We are cancelling or rescheduling all on-campus events and gatherings through at least March 28.
- The student residence hall will remain open, but we are not permitting guests in the residence hall as of Friday, March 13.
- Early during the week of March 23, the College will communicate if and for how much longer past March 27 we will continue to hold classes and operate remotely.
LIM College will continue to provide updates to our students, faculty, and staff on this rapidly evolving situation, and we appreciate your patience, trust, and flexibility during what is a challenging time for all.

President, LIM College
