You may have heard by now that all summer classes at KU will be online.

Welcome back from spring break! So much has happened in just two weeks. We are glad to be getting back to what we do best: educating students.

We want you to know how we in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences are pulling together to ensure that we will be ready to successfully start remote classes on Monday. We encourage you to share this information with your family, as well. You can also find a link to this communication and other updates from the College at https://college.ku.edu/
