The health and safety of the Valparaiso University campus and community is our highest priority, and we continue to monitor updates regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.  We have recently seen a troubling rise in the number of on-campus positive cases.  We therefore must take the following steps in order to try to stop the spread of COVID cases and keep our campus safe. These steps will take effect immediately and are effective through March 14, 2021 (please refer to valpo.edu/looking-forward for updates and the number of cases on campus).
