BEAUMONT— LIT will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, August 25-27, 2020. If conditions allow, laboratory and clinical courses might return on Friday (as a means of averting any future loss of instructional time due to COVID-19).
Faculty, staff, and students should take home necessary materials as we work remotely; and coordinate with instructors and supervisors on assignments during this time. With mandatory evacuations from other cities, our faculty and supervisors will maintain flexibility with students and employees who are affected by the orders.
