IU Fort Wayne and Purdue Fort Wayne are campus partners, yet PFW manages campus infrastructure and resources.  Therefore, the decision of PFW impacts IUFW equally in regard to the physical operations of, and access to, the campus. Please know that the faculty and staff of IU Fort Wayne are here for you, we're just working off-campus.  We ask that all students and guests limit travel to campus unless for medical attention. While the campus is operating in this mode, please call or email the appropriate department directly for assistance or to schedule virtual meetings.


IU Fort Wayne campus update 3/16/2020

In regard to IU President McRobbie’s letter to the IU community Sunday evening, the statement below regarding the IU Fort Wayne campus break schedule, specifically, remains unchanged. We continue to seek alignment with Purdue Fort Wayne as a partner-campus and to coordinate schedules wherever possible. Therefore, as of now, IU Fort Wayne’s spring break will end March 22nd and we will begin teaching all courses on-line March 23rd.  This continues to be a fluid situation so please keep an eye out for updates. 


IU Fort Wayne extending spring break, classes moving online

In response to the ongoing concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Indiana University Fort Wayne campus is extending the current spring break for students an additional week and will suspend face-to-face teaching until further notice. Spring break will now conclude on Sunday, March 22. All classes at IU Fort Wayne will move online beginning Monday, March 23.

Students in IU Fort Wayne health sciences programs' clinical rotations will receive additional information from their school regarding the status of these experiences.

The spring break extension and move to online classes allows alignment with Purdue Fort Wayne. This decision also protects students by reducing large group meetings and in-person interactions while their education continues uninterrupted. IU Fort Wayne collaborates closely with Purdue since many of IU students also are enrolled in Purdue Fort Wayne coursework. If you have questions, please contact your program.

IU Fort Wayne's top priority is the health and safety of its students. Given the quickly evolving nature of the outbreak and related recommendations, students, their families and others in the IU community are encouraged to stay informed via a dedicated website, which includes daily updates.
