In light of continuing COVID-19 risks, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is cancelling all international spring break programs sponsored by the university. Additionally, university-sponsored domestic student spring break programs that require air travel are cancelled. University-sponsored programs are those that are affiliated with a course, financially supported by the university or include university faculty-staff chaperones. Vice Chancellors and Deans will be given the discretion to determine if domestic spring break programs that do not require air travel may proceed as planned.

We understand that cancellations may be disruptive. The university will work with departments and individuals to address any academic or financial implications that may arise because of these cancellations.

We understand that the continued spread of the virus is generating concern and uncertainty for many. We are continuing to work closely with state and local health officials on all medical issues and to implement precautions to help ensure the safety of all who live here.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding as we continue to make decisions and develop plans to protect our faculty members, staff and students on a constantly evolving issue.
