Dear Penn State Brandywine Community:

In a letter to the entire Penn State community, President Eric J. Barron announced that all Penn State campuses will be transitioning to remote learning starting Monday, March 16, through the spring semester in response to the global coronavirus outbreak. While there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) at Penn State Brandywine, due to the increase number of cases in our region, we believe that this plan, although challenging to implement, is in the best interest of our students, faculty and staff, and community.

Whenever possible, classes will meet at regularly scheduled times via Zoom.

We understand that news about COVID-19 and the precautionary measures the University is taking can be stressful for some individuals. Whether it’s for mental or physical health concerns, students should request accommodations from their professors. If you feel sick, please stay at home and call your healthcare provider.

This is an evolving situation and we will continue to communicate with you as we receive updated information.

The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and community remains our top priority. My thanks to each and every one of you for your patience and cooperation.

Marilyn J. Wells
