Summer Session I classes online
Tuesday, March 31, 2020, 11:15 a.m.

At the University of Lethbridge, the safety of our students, and of the community, is our top concern; as well, we endeavour to set an example in following all of the public health guidelines as closely as possible.

We have made the decision to cancel, or move online where possible, all currently scheduled face-to-face courses for Summer Session I. Decisions for subsequent summer sessions and for Full Summer Session opportunities whose start dates can be delayed (e.g. co-ops) will be made at a later date.

Registration will be re-opening on Wednesday, Apr. 1 at 7:30 a.m. for summer 2020 and fall 2020. In the summer timetable, many courses have been timetabled for online delivery and in the coming days more courses may be added or changed to online delivery formats. Check the timetable regularly for new and updated summer course offerings and special scheduling notes.

Dear Campus Community,

This is a very important time for us here at the University of Lethbridge. Over the course of the last two weeks, we have undergone a massive change in virtually everything we do and it’s thanks to the collective efforts and talents of our faculty and staff, many of whom are U of L alumni, that we’ve been able to achieve this transition.

In this time, we have moved our entire course delivery model out of the in-person classroom to an alternative mode. We have also taken bold action to shift the majority of our workforce off of campus and as of 4 p.m. today, the Lethbridge campus will have restricted access. Only select faculty and staff will be allowed access to campus to tend to specific critical research programs and operational continuity. As well, students in need of wi-fi and computer access will continue to utilize Anderson Hall. Everyone on campus will be registered and expected to adhere to strict physical distancing protocols.

We have taken these measures with the health and safety of our campus community as the guiding thought. We also understand our role as a community leader and not only will our commitment to the principles of physical distancing benefit the broader southern Alberta community from a health standpoint, it serves as an example to others that this situation must be taken seriously.
