Subject: Study Abroad and Wroxton College

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

I hope the semester is off to a great start and that everyone is navigating the challenges as best as possible. We know this is not a normal semester, but we continue to be determined to serve our students well, and I know our students are equally determined to pursue their academic goals. Together we will be successful.

The challenges, though, do continue, and it is becoming clear that some restrictions may need to be in place for a while longer. Overseas travel, for example, remains an uncertain proposition as we look ahead to the spring. Therefore, we have made the decision to suspend study abroad programs, including our programs at Wroxton College, for the spring semester. We are very sorry that we cannot offer students these opportunities, but I hope that you all understand that our first priority is always the safety and well-being of our community, and there simply remain too many restrictions and risks to plan such travel programs. While we cannot offer study abroad at this time, our faculty and staff will continue to create valuable and meaningful experiences for our students throughout the year.

Thank you as always for your understanding and consideration. Best of luck for continued success this semester.
