COVID-19 Update: Stay-at-home order for Illinois

Governor J.B. Pritzker has issued a stay-at-home order for all Illinois residents to shelter-in-place beginning Saturday, March 21, at 5 p.m.  The stay-at-home order allows residents to continue to visit the grocery store, put gas in their cars, walk outside and make pharmacy runs. All local roads, including the interstate highways and tollways, will remain open to traffic, as well.

Millikin University has been moving forward with new procedures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic for several weeks. 

Millikin has:

  • Established guidelines enabling faculty and staff to work remotely. In alignment with Governor Pritzker's order, employees designated "essential" in nature who are needed on campus will be notified by their supervisors.
  • Already switched to online or distance-learning teaching methods for the remaining weeks of the semester. The exact mode of delivery will vary from faculty-to-faculty and course-to-course, with the goal of continuing the semester so that students will not lose progress toward degrees. Online classes will resume beginning March 23, 2020.
  • Ensured essential services will be provided for students remaining on campus. Millikin is committed to providing the highest level of service and care possible during this challenging time.

While the University is closed to the public at this time, please be assured that faculty and staff will remain in contact with students. The continued safety and well-being of all in the Millikin community, especially our students who remain in campus housing, is our top priority and intentional action is being taken to ensure their safety.
