LMU to Continue Seated Classes For Spring Semester

Masks in class

Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) President Clayton Hess announced today the decision to continue seated courses and the on-campus experience for the Spring 2021 semester.

The fall term, which began on August 17, will continue as scheduled with undergraduate classes ending December 4 followed by a week of final exams. The semester will conclude with a virtual commencement ceremony launching on December 12.

Social distancing and enhanced safety practices, including wearing masks, will continue for students, faculty and staff, with limited events and visitors allowed on campus during the spring semester.

“The health and safety of our academic community remains our first priority. Our task force has continued to meet and adjust the University’s response to the global pandemic,” Hess said. “Our decisions have been and will continue to be guided by health professionals and data. Our students and employees have done a good job cooperating with policies to slow the spread and keep virus activity on campus low.”

Spring classes are set to begin as originally scheduled on January 11. While the University intends to continue the in-person campus experience, state and local requirements may require alternative methods of instruction and increased virus activity may necessitate a transition back to online courses at some point during the semester.
