The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs will move its courses online starting March 30 due to concerns of the new coronavirus, according to an email Dean Angela Evans sent to LBJ students Wednesday. 

Evans said in the email the decision was made after receiving input from faculty in a survey conducted earlier this week. 

“We will work with faculty for whom the online platform does not readily accommodate their instruction to ensure they have the support they need,” Evans said in the email. 

Evans said in the email faculty are expected to return March 23 to give them time before students return to adjust their course materials, timelines and assignments and communicate these changes with students. 

The decision was made in response to an announcement Wednesday from University President Gregory Fenves that the University plans to remain open, but deans of each college will determine how instruction will be delivered over the next few weeks, Evans said in the email.
