Fall Study Abroad Programs Canceled at Emory University
After canceling all in-person summer programming and going completely off-campus and in remote learning format, and May Commencement, Jan Love, Interim Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs at Emory University announced that all university-sponsored study abroad for undergraduate students in Fall 2020 is canceled.
Love added to the announcement, “We have made this difficult and disappointing decision based on the health and safety concerns associated with global and domestic travel and the uncertainty of conditions in various countries abroad. These considerations are also combined with concerns about the stability and resilience of the sponsoring organizations responsible for providing a quality experience that would allow students to achieve their academic and personal goals.”
While there are sure to be other universities who do the same, Emory is the first one in Georgia to make this preemptive move.
