A Message from the Dean, Dr. Alan Brender

学部長 Dr.Alan Brenderからの新型コロナウィルスに関するメッセージ

 Dear Students,

I hope you are coping well with your online classes. LUJ’s administrators are closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19, and have decided to continue all courses online for the rest of the Spring 2020 semester. We greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts and cooperation as classes continue virtually, and want to remind you to communicate closely with your instructors. Information regarding final exams will be sent to all students in the near future.

The campus will remain closed to students for the rest of the teaching weeks. We are still evaluating how final exams will be administered as well as testing for other purposes.


TOEFL Tests and Placement Tests for New Academic Students

EAP and graduating students need to continue checking their LUJ email, as important updates regarding test dates, times, and locations will be sent soon.

Students with Travel Plans

We are requiring any students who have recently or will travel outside of Japan to fill out an online “Travel Plan Survey”, which will be sent to your email from the Student Affairs office shortly. Students returning from a high-risk area, or who believe they may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, will be asked to self-isolate for the recommended period of 14 days prior to returning to the LUJ campus. The most updated information can be found on the CDC website page for Travel Health Notices.

How to Minimize the Risk to Exposure

As the spread of COVID-19 continues, it becomes ever-more important to do everything you can to minimize the risk of exposure. This includes:

1. Avoiding unnecessary large crowds and contact with people who have contracted the virus,

2. Avoid traveling to areas which may be at high risk,

3. Maintaining proper hygiene methods.
