Dear Students, Parents, Faculty and Staff,
The coronavirus (COVID-19) has been an unprecedented situation that we have worked diligently and prayerfully to discern how to best continue our students’ academic progression. In the last seven days the local, national, and global situation has rapidly changed while the University was actively taking steps to move all in-person classes to an online format. Because of these unfolding events, we have decided that Missouri Baptist University will complete the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester through online-only classes.
Although no cases have been confirmed at MBU, we believe this decision will help provide stability for our students so they can focus on academic success while helping our university community stay safe and healthy.
Future Decisions and Considerations
We recognize students, parents, faculty, and staff will have questions related to this decision. The University is working quickly to provide additional answers to anticipated questions, such as:
Our goal is to communicate important information no later than Friday, March 27 as we work through the complexities of these questions and many others. We will send an additional detailed email by this date.
In general, we encourage you to check MBU’s website for updates on COVID-19 for the latest changes to campus operations and answers to frequently asked questions.
As Spartans and a body of believers, we are committed to helping each other through this difficult time because the safety and wellbeing of our campus community is always our number one priority. Each of our students, faculty, staff and their families are in our prayers. We are committed to our students’ education and how MBU can offer hope to our local, national, and global communities.
