Coronavirus Updates

March 19, 2020

In response to the U.S. Department of State’s Global Level 4 Health Advisory, CGEE has suspended all international programming through July 2020.  We continue to monitor the situation daily, and when the Global Level 4 Health Advisory has been lifted, we will return to assessing international locations individually (see CGEE’s previous coronavirus postings below), according to local conditions and site-specific guidance.
 
We are transitioning to online delivery of courses for CGEE-run spring programs so that the students who have had to come home from those sites can still complete their credits.  Classes are scheduled to resume online on March 30.  We are also collaborating with affiliate and exchange partners to find alternative modes of course delivery for students who have returned home from spring programs that are not run by CGEE.
 
Note that CGEE has not yet canceled programs scheduled for fall 2020 or beyond (i.e., August 2020 or later).  It remains our hope that we will be able to run these programs.  We also continue to plan, and accept proposals for, short-term customized programs in fall 2020 and beyond with partner colleges and universities and other external institutions.  We will make decisions on the status of future programs as conditions evolve.
 
If you have any questions, please contact our CGEE Risk Manager, Margaret Anderson, at the following number: +1  612-330-1685.

Additional Contacts at CGEE

To manage the spread of COVID-19, Augsburg University's physical campus has reduced operations to meet federal, state, and local guidelines for social distancing. But CGEE staff are available and ready to talk with students or advisors virtually!  Many staff members can meet by phone or online via Zoom.
