Chancellor Thanks U of A Community for Making Adjustments to New Normal
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – "Keep practicing precautionary measures and looking out for one another. That's the surest way to limit the spread of coronavirus in the length of this outbreak."
Those words were part of an encouraging message to the campus community from University of Arkansas Chancellor Joe Steinmetz urging the students, faculty and staff to "hang in there."
During these unprecedented times, students, faculty and staff are assisting the community and state in dealing with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic in many ways.
The university is currently gathering information regarding available resources, details about where help is needed and uplifting stories of those who are helping when the community needs them the most.
Stay tuned for more information in the coming days.
The U of A will continue to coordinate efforts with public health organizations at all levels and will continue to provide new information and updates as soon as they are available.
