Acadia University has announced that all in-person classes for students have been cancelled due to precautions related to the COVID-19 virus. The campus has also been closed to the general public.
We in the ALL program feel it is important that we exercise the same caution, so we have decided to cancel the remaining sessions of our winter term courses, as well our Lunchtime Learning Series. We will be contacting our registered course participants in the coming days with refund details.
It is our sincere hope that this decision will help limit the spread of the virus in our community. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
