Updates on current operations

This page provides updates for students, faculty, staff and parents on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting campus operations. As the situation evolves, we will post updates here and/or e-mail updates to our campus community, which you also can find below. 

Our highly residential campus environment and our responsibility to the larger issue of public health require us to be proactive, rather than reactive, in making decisions that affect the well-being of our community.

General Information

Dear students, faculty and staff,

The University remains committed to sharing information with you in a timely manner, especially dealing with the impact of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic on our campus community. 

The University received notice, and has been in contact with Public Health - Dayton and Montgomery County today that an individual who has been present on campus has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual is in isolation until they have been cleared by health officials. This is the first known confirmed case of COVID-19 connected to the University of Dayton.

After discussion with local public health authorities the University performed an extensive deep sanitization and has isolated the areas with which the individual may have come into contact in accordance with applicable protocols and CDC recommendations. 

Public Health is following up with close contacts of this individual to determine their level of exposure and provide guidance about next steps, including self-quarantine. The process of contact tracing can take several days. 

In order to respect the privacy of this individual and comply with federal regulations regarding confidentiality, we will not identify the individual and no further information will be released. Ensuring the anonymity of individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 is important so that they can focus fully on their health and the care they need.

Please join us in praying for the full and quick recovery of this person and in support of family, friends and close contacts. 

If you think you have been in contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19, please visit the CDC's resources on COVID-19. More information for employees is available on the University's COVID-19 resources website.

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing anxiety and distress for many of us, both on and off campus and resources are available for students as well as employees. The counseling center is available for students remotely. Students should call 937-229-3141 to discuss appointment options. Employees may contact the Lifeworks Employee Assistance Program or Campus Ministry at 937-229-3339. 

The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented challenge, and we want to thank everyone again for your support in the steps we must take to try to slow the spread of this disease and move toward in-person classes in the fall. We are proud of how the UD community is rising to this challenge and acting in the best interest of the common good.

We will continue to update you as necessary through email and on the COVID-19 resources website. Please send any additional questions you might have to covid19@udayton.edu.

Sincerely,
Dr. Mary Buchwalder M.D. 
Medical Director
University of Dayton


Case investigation and contact tracing, disease control measures employed by local and state health departments for decades, are key strategies for preventing further spread of COVID-19. The purpose is to isolate anyone who is sick, and identify and quarantine for 14 days anyone with whom they've had close contact. If close contacts develop symptoms, they are directed to seek medical care. The time for contact tracing varies depending on where the person with a suspected case and close contacts live, and if Public Health - Dayton and Montgomery County needs to work with health departments in those jurisdictions. Additionally, sometimes it takes several days to get in touch with close contacts, especially if they live outside Montgomery County. 


The student health center is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

To make an appointment, call 937-229-3131, press 1. If you have a fever or cough, press 2 to talk to a nurse first. Please call the health center first before coming to the center.

All University of Dayton Counseling Center services are being provided by Zoom or by telephone for new and existing clients. Students can contact the counseling center at 937-229-3141 to discuss appointment options. The counseling center has made every effort to contact existing clients to see how they are doing and offer services.

Services may be limited for students living outside Ohio because of certain state laws; check with the Counseling Center for details. 

Psychology Today and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association national helpline can provide referrals for anyone looking for a provider closer to home.

If you are in imminent danger of suicide, please call 911. If you have thoughts of self-harm or suicide and need to talk to someone, please call the National Suicide Hotline at 800-273-8255 or text "Help" to 741741.


The creation of community is central to all we do at the University of Dayton, where faculty and staff "educate in the family spirit" and help students find their vocation - discovering where a student's passion and gifts align with the needs of the world.

During this global pandemic, you will see our values and our commitment to community are not wavering, whether evident in our protection of students' health and the greater public good or our emphasis on keeping students connected to each other and to faculty and staff, even across many miles. Simply put, there is no better place to call home than the University of Dayton, whether during joyous times or challenging times: you are connected, you are cared for, and you are part of a true community.

Here is what we're doing to hopefully bring relief to our parents and students:

  • For students who have applied or already been admitted for the fall 2020 entering class, we are committed to being as flexible as possible to allow you time to respond to our offer of admission for the fall term. We encourage all families to confirm their enrollment as soon as they can.
  • For students considering transferring to UD for the fall 2020 semester or for those who have applied as a transfer student already, we are committed to being as flexible and responsive as possible to consider you for admission and to affirm the courses you are completing now, knowing your current semester has been disrupted by the pandemic and that you may have opted to select pass/fail grading options.
  • We have opportunities for you to learn more about UD and to "see" campus and "experience" from many angles, via digital media and virtual personal interactions with faculty, staff and current students. Visit our virtual campus visit site often for updates. Please know our staff is available via phone, email, chat and video during extended business hours and by appointment when it’s most convenient for you.
  • The University of Dayton is a leader in tuition transparency. The scholarship and grant funding you have been offered gives you the assurance of the total cost of your degree. If you have not yet filed your FAFSA, please do so as soon as possible so we can provide you with a transparent financial aid offer and consider you for a book scholarship worth up to $4,000 for traditional undergraduate students and up to $3,000 for transfer students.
  • New Student Orientation will be moving to a virtual format.
  • For current high school juniors considering applying for our fall 2021 class, we are pleased to announce we will be transitioning to test-optional admission. This is especially relevant now, as ACT and College Board have canceled test administrations this spring, and we don't know if future tests will be subject to cancellation. 

The University of Dayton is committed to protecting the health and safety of our campus and the broader community. The steps we are taking are at the recommendation of the state of Ohio, the Ohio Department of Health, and Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County, and are in the best interest of UD and the surrounding community. We are making frequent updates about our response, and the latest information can be found here.

Please consider a gift to the Student Crisis Fund, which helps any currently enrolled student who has an unanticipated emergency or unforeseen financial difficulty that requires immediate financial assistance. Click here to learn more about the fund or to make a donation.

Here are suggested volunteer opportunities from the University of Dayton Center for Social Concern. 

  • Volunteering to sew cloth mask covers - Kettering Health Network is partnering with local community groups, including Goodwill Industries and the Dayton Sewing Collaborative, to produce cloth mask covers. The mask covers can be worn over surgical masks to support employee safety. Click here to view the approved pattern and material specifications. Donations can be made at the main entrance of any hospital or free-standing emergency department, and all donations will be screened to ensure packaging is intact, sealed, and safe for use.
  • Donate blood - Make an appointment to donate at the Community Blood Center at www.DonorTime.com or call 937-461-3220. Appointments are necessary to limit the number of people in the building and allow time to disinfect the space between donors.
  • Donate or volunteer at/to food banks, food pantries, K-12 schools and soup kitchens that are very busy helping families, children and seniors get fed. Consider making a cash donation to your local food bank. The Dayton Food Bank is doing a great job but can use extra financial help. If you're not from Dayton, find your local Feeding America Food Bank to donate to or volunteer there.
  • In Dayton, help is needed at the House of Bread (937-226-1520). St. Vincent de Paul needs some volunteers at their food pantry every second and fourth Wednesday from 8 a.m. to noon. Email volunteerinfo@stvincentdayton.org or call 937-222-5555, ext. 103, for more information. In Old North Dayton, there are two food pantries that could use volunteers on the weekends; Contact Matt Tepper at ondneighbors@gmail.com.
  • K-12 schools are working to provide school lunches to students and may require assistance handing out bags to students and parents. Contact your local school to find volunteer opportunities. To help out at other school districts in the Miami Valley, check out https://hallhunger.org/coping-with-covid-19. Help spread the word on how children can get meals while out of school by sharing the Cincinnati and Dayton public schools plans for helping feed children. 
  • Make a meal, buy groceries, run an errand or just be there to talk on the phone with your neighbors. Call them and find out what they need and then put it on their porch. If you don't know their phone number, put a note on their front door with your phone number on it. Check in on anyone you know is alone, isolated, or who might struggle with anxiety or depression. 
  • Patronize local restaurants and other small businesses. Many local restaurants are now offering carry-out and delivery. Or buy gift certificates to use later from restaurants and other small local businesses you normally patronize. 
  • Homeless shelters are on the front lines serving those who are most at risk. They are in great need of donations. St. Vincent de Paul in Dayton needs twin sheets, bath towels and washcloths. You can ship them through Amazon or bring them to the 24/7 donation center at 120 W. Apple Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402. You can make online donations at stvincentdayton.org/.
  • Childcare - Offer childcare to parents who have no options while their kids are out of school.
  • Pray for our world. Pray for the most vulnerable. Pray in thanksgiving for and protection of our doctors, nurses, daycare workers, and anyone else unable to be well protected from this pandemic because of their vocation.

Information about the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception and Campus Ministry offerings

The Chapel of the Immaculate Conception will remain open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for private prayer as long as the university is open. We ask you to respect others who may be there to pray by maintaining physical-distancing (staying at least 6 feet apart).


Mass will be at 10 a.m., with a capacity of 30. Once the chapel reaches capacity, congregants will not be permitted to enter but can participate in Mass from the courtyard with a listening device or watch online.

Entrance will be through the double doors at the back of the chapel where there will be hand sanitizer and someone to seat you. Exit will be by row starting in the back. Everyone who is physically able must wear a face covering. 

Mass will be shorter to limit the amount of time spent in a crowd. The Communion procession will be a single-file line and Communion will be by hand only; please maintain social distancing throughout the procession. 

Thank you in advance for your patience. Our plans enable us to return to worship while doing our best to provide the safest environment possible for you, our volunteers and our employees. 

We understand some will not yet be able to return to the celebration of the Eucharist. Please know the Archdiocese of Cincinnati has granted a dispensation from the Sunday obligation.

There will not be a 6 p.m. Sunday Mass this summer. Weekday Mass will resume in mid-August. 

Details of Campus Ministry's plans can be found here.


Check the Campus Ministry website for opportunities to participate in live-stream prayer or worship or to connect with others in faith. Here are some suggestions.

Campus Ministry also encourages you to pray at home or consider these resources:

  • Pray the Marianist Three O’Clock prayer daily (in your own time zone). This is a prayer of spiritual unity and solidarity for the Marianist family. Marianist communities all over the world interrupt their work and study at 3 p.m. daily to express communion with Mary and the Beloved disciple, who are closely united with Jesus on the cross. 
  • A COVID-19 prayer for people affected by the coronavirus or by other serious situations and those who assist them. 
  • Give us this Day provides digital options for prayers, daily Mass readings and prayers and reflections. 
  • Magnificat Online is a similar resource that provides free access during this time. 
  • Phone apps for personal prayer like Give Us This Day, IBreviary, Laudate, Common Prayer (Ecumenical), The Prayer App (2000+ Catholic Prayers), Pray As You Go and Reimagining the Examen

Information for students

When was the deadline to drop classes for the first summer term?

The last day to drop without a record from first session summer classes was May 27. Visit Porches for more information.

How can I access library resources?

University library buildings are closed. The Libraries' website and research guides provide online access to materials, including e-books, journal articles, primary sources and more for all members of the UD community. Students can contact the library for remote guidance via email, text, chat or Zoom meeting. Click here for contact information. More information is available on the Libraries’ website.

Will tutoring, supplemental instruction, and other systems of learning support continue to be offered?

Tutoring, supplemental instruction, writing support through the Write Place, Global Learning Support, and academic coaching will continue to be offered through the Office of Learning Resources (OLR), though with some variation due to the remote environment. Students should be able to schedule most services through the Student Success Network (SSN). OLR will keep its website updated with the most current information. Please email questions to learningresources@udayton.edu, and OLR staff will respond as soon as possible within normal business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET).

Will remote education impact academic integrity?

UD has long experience with online learning. We have not seen evidence that online environments are less effective than traditional classrooms in advancing student learning. That finding is also supported by a great deal of research that has been conducted nationwide over the past decade. 

How can I get drop/add forms signed?

From your UD email account, email your add/drop request to your dean’s office. Copy your instructor(s) and advisor on your email. In the subject line, please enter your student ID # and your academic major. In the body of your message please be sure to indicate specific course details: class name, subject, course number, section number. Your dean’s office will review the request and, once approved, will forward it to Flyer Student Services for processing.

What if I planned on getting approval for summer courses elsewhere?

Fill out the transfer credit pre-approval form and attach all required documents in an email to your dean’s office. 

What about study abroad?

All summer education abroad programs and off-campus immersion trips are canceled until further notice. 

Can research continue?

Research activities that cannot be delayed, cannot be conducted remotely, and that abide strictly by public health protocols for social distancing may continue. There should be no direct contact with human subjects in research; all contact with human subjects should be remote. Click here for additional information about conducting research during the COVID-19 pandemic. Questions about appropriate student research activities during this time should be directed to your professor or adviser.

How can I learn to be successful in an online environment?

Visit https://isidore.udayton.edu/keeplearning to stay up to date with information on how to thrive in an online learning environment. OLR staff are available for academic coaching appointments if you’re struggling in this new online environment or worried about how things will work for you. Schedule your coaching appointment through the Student Success Network. If unable to schedule, contact success@udayton.edu.

Can I still use my academic accommodations related to a disability or medical condition?

Yes, your accommodations still apply. OLR will continue to remind professors of this. If you have questions about how your accommodations will work for a particular class, please discuss with that professor. If you still have questions after doing that, email disabilityservices@udayton.edu and one of the OLR Disability Services staff will contact you as soon as possible during regular business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT). 

Accommodation letters can be requested or modified at any time of the semester. If you are eligible for and want to use academic accommodations for this semester, please request accommodation letters in AIM if you haven’t already done so. Instructions for requesting accommodation letters are available in AIM (go.udayton.edu/AIM). If your needs have changed given the new environment, you can also modify your accommodation request in AIM. 

If the new online environment has created new barriers, please reach out to disabilityservices@udayton.edu or learningservices@udayton.edu for support. We are available and will follow up with you during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT).

What do I do if I have a new medical or disability issue? 

Log into AIM (go.udayton.edu/AIM). If you are new to disability services, you can fill out an Initial Accommodation Request. If you already have accommodations but need something new, follow the link to Request Additional Accommodations (on the left side of the screen).

Will I still have final exams?

The delivery of final exams or alternative final course assessments will be determined by each professor. Please contact your professor for details and expectations. It may take a few weeks for your professor to determine how best to design a final course assessment in an online environment.

How do I contact my professors?

Email is the first choice. Watch your class Isidore site for updates and announcements. Your professor is very likely to be using your UD email address when contacting you.

Do I have to "go to class" at the scheduled time?

Each professor will decide how their class time will work. It is critical that you watch your class Isidore site and your email for updates and announcements. Contact your professors individually with any questions.

What do I do if I have problems with my technology?

The UDit Service Center is offering in-person support by appointment only. Email ITservicecenter@udayton.edu or call 937-229-3888 to talk with a technician about remote support options or schedule an appointment to visit Anderson 28 for equipment drop-offs, hardware assistance and other issues that can't be resolved remotely. Click here for UDit service center hours

I’m in a different time zone than UD. How can I make that work?

Make sure you let the people you're communicating with know what time zone you’re in so they can make adjustments when possible. It will not normally be possible to deliver the same course section at multiple times, however.

What if I have a question not addressed here?

Please contact your professors and academic advisors for guidance. 


Does this decision affect degree programs that already are offered online?

Online degree programs, such as MBA@Dayton, Law@Dayton, the Doctor of Education (EdD) in Leadership for Organizations, and others offered in partnership with 2U or developed in-house will continue uninterrupted on the standard academic schedules they follow.

Should Graduate Assistants continue their work?

Yes. Graduate assistants (GAs) are employees, as well as students, and should continue to carry out their responsibilities, where they can do so safely. In most cases, GAs will be working remotely. If they have questions about the safety of their work areas or their work assignments, they should raise these with their supervisors. Supervisors should be sensitive to and understanding of concerns or anxieties that GAs have in current circumstances. While GAs should expect to continue their normal weekly work schedule, they should understand that emerging circumstances might alter their work assignments.

Where GAs have responsibilities to teach classes or labs or to assist in other instructional functions, they should carry out those activities remotely, in accordance with the guidance of their supervisors. Where GAs have research responsibilities, they should continue to carry them out, where they can do so safely. Where GAs are assigned responsibilities in offices outside of academic units (e.g., in Student Development or Campus Ministry), they should continue to carry out their work assignments, where feasible. If their normal work cannot be done under current campus conditions, they should be assigned other responsibilities by the offices that employ them, so long as those other responsibilities can be performed safely.

Can I still submit my thesis/dissertation for formatting review?

Yes. Theses and dissertations ready to be submitted to Graduate Academic Affairs (GAA) for formatting review must be submitted electronically as usual. GAA staff who are working remotely will continue to review theses and dissertations in a timely fashion. See the GAA Porches page for details and deadlines. 

Will I still be able to receive bound copies of my thesis or dissertation? 

Yes. St. Mary's Hall is currently closed to all parties who do not work in the building. When full access to campus returns, we will be able to accept hard copies of theses/dissertations for binding. It is likely that there will be a delay in submitting documents for binding, but bound thesis/dissertation copies will be available to all who wish to obtain them.

Can I still defend my thesis this semester?

Thesis/dissertation defenses can and should continue to take place either in-person following social distancing procedures (at least 6 feet separation between individuals) or via Zoom. Contact your advisor to make the appropriate arrangements. UDit can help with arrangements, especially document sharing; e.g., PowerPoint slides.

I'm in a different time zone than UD. How can I make that work?

Make sure you let the people you're communicating with know what time zone you’re in so they can make adjustments when possible.

Will the University be renewing or hiring graduate assistants for the coming year? 

The University's priorities are to continue to support current graduate assistants (where their assistantships are renewable and student performance has been satisfactory), honor new assistantship appointments that already were finalized or are entirely supported by external funding, but reduce total GA expenses to the greatest extent possible given the uncertainties about the University's financial situation and enrollment. GAs with questions about their individual situations should discuss those with their supervisors and program directors. 

What if I have a question not addressed here?

Please contact your professors, program director and academic advisors for guidance.


Will residential J.D. classes be online?

Online classes will continue through the summer session.

Does this decision affect Law@Dayton students?

The Law@Dayton weekly online class schedule will not change. Get REAL Week will now be online. 

How are non-J.D. programs affected?

Classes in the Government Contracting and Procurement Master's Program will continue online. Online LL.M. and PatentPlus certificate students will continue online classes as normal.

How is bar preparation affected? Will I be able to sit for the bar?

Ohio postponed its July bar exam until September and other jurisdictions have made similar decisions. The law school will provide bar prep assistance to students until they take their bar exam. Please contact Micheline Kidwell at kidwellm1@udayton.edu if you have questions. 

Will I receive a refund or credit for any unused portions of housing or meal plans?

Students will receive a credit or, in certain circumstances, a refund for unused portions of housing or meal plans. Please click here for details.

Am I allowed into Keller Hall?

Anyone with card access can return to Keller Hall for UDSL-approved purposes or to retrieve belongings provided they keep their time in the building to a minimum and they maintain social distancing. If you have questions, contact Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and Registrar Shannon Penn at LawOffOfReg@udayton.edu.

How does this affect co-curricular or extracurricular activities, like law clinics and law review?

Students should direct questions to their instructors or advisers.

Is the Zimmerman Law Library open?

Information for faculty and staff

I'm a supervisor. What if someone reports to me they have COVID-19?

If you receive a report, confirmed or unconfirmed, that a member of your team has been exposed to or has contracted coronavirus, please call the Health Center at 937-229-3131 for guidance. Please remember not to share the person's health information with colleagues. This is a violation of their privacy, and this information is protected by HIPAA and other laws. We continue to be in close contact with regional public health officials to investigate cases and trace potential contacts. 

I'm a supervisor. What should I do if I suspect someone has COVID-19?

Supervisors (with the support and involvement of HR as needed) should ask employees who are exhibiting symptoms to go home and contact their health care provider for further evaluation, including when it is safe to return to work. We ask staff to cooperate with supervisors for the well-being of all.

Are faculty allowed to work from campus?

Faculty are expected to work remotely except where particular elements of their work require them to be on campus, for instance for the conduct of their research or to use specialized IT resources for teaching. Minimizing physical presence on campus is a top priority.

What resources are available to support online teaching and learning?

Instructions, training and support for facilitating classes online for the remainder of the semester are available at https://isidore.udayton.edu/keepteaching. Faculty are strongly encouraged to review the resources posted on the Keep Teaching site and support one another before they reach out for assistance given the large number of faculty and courses transitioning online during this time.

How can I transition my laboratory or studio class, capstone projects, performance ensemble or other experience-based modes of education to a virtual environment?

Answers to these questions are situation- and discipline-specific. Please consult your department chair and your colleagues both at UD and across the country. Many faculty are discussing these challenges on social media, through disciplinary listserves, and in the higher education media. In situations where students are required to give a presentation to the entire class, it is important to note Zoom can be used for student presentations (see http://go.udayton.edu/keepteaching).

Will I be required to give final exams?

For reasons of maintaining the academic integrity of our courses, final assessments of student learning of some type must be administered. Since in-person testing is not possible, alternatives to traditional testing may be better suited to the online environment. In consultation with one’s department chair and colleagues, faculty can consider options such as final papers/projects, Zoom interviews, open-book exams, etc. While the need to account for academic integrity and exam security is important, faculty will likely need to be flexible with their expectations during the remainder of the semester. The University is not prepared to offer online exam proctoring services at this time given complex logistics and increased costs; however, the University is still required to provide testing accommodations for eligible students. The Office of eLearning has begun working on resources to help faculty consider alternatives for traditional in-class final exams. Resources will be shared on the Keep Teaching site as soon as possible. The Office of Learning Resources is preparing a document about testing accommodations that will be sent soon to all faculty who are teaching students eligible for accommodations.

Will tutoring, supplemental instruction and other systems of learning support continue to be offered?

Tutoring, supplemental instruction, writing support through the Write Place, Global Learning Support, and academic coaching will continue to be offered through the Office of Learning Resources (OLR), though with some variation due to the digital environment. Students should be able to schedule most services through Student Success Network; details are still being worked out. OLR will update its website daily with the most current information. Please email specific questions to learningresources@udayton.edu, and OLR staff will respond as soon as possible during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). Include your phone contact information if you would prefer to work by phone.

What resources are available to ensure I am accommodating students with disabilities in the most effective ways?

It is the faculty member's responsibility to continue to provide accommodations for students who share an accommodation letter.

OLR's Disability Services staff will be available during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) to consult with faculty about specific accommodation needs. Call 937-229-2066 or e-mail disabilitytesting@udayton.edu with questions or to set up an appointment. Include your phone contact information if you would prefer to work by phone. Appointments for disability services, accommodations and voluntary medical withdrawals will be conducted via telephone. 

See this set of modules prepared by eLearning for help. Ensuring video materials are captioned (Zoom recordings and Warpwire Videos are automatically captioned), all text materials are provided in accessible format, and online quizzes and tests are set up to allow for extended time are the first things to think about. 

If you use Isidore for tests or quizzes, please consult these Isidore instructions to learn how to set extended time on Isidore tests for students with accommodations. If you use a different platform, consult their materials or support staff for information on how to extend a student’s testing time.

We will not be using AIM for student test requests while classes remain online only. Please assign extended time to any student who is eligible for it as per their accommodation letter (under the heading Alternative Testing). Even though we will not be using AIM for student test requests, it still remains a vital source of information for you. Log on to AIM to see the list of students in your courses and sections who have requested accommodations. You can click on "View" next to each student's name to see the current accommodation letter with their extended time listed. If you have not logged into AIM before or are having issues, please e-mail disabilitytesting@udayton.edu or call 937-229-3475.  

Many UD students (including those not registered with disability accommodations) are dealing with anxiety related to the abrupt transition to an online learning environment. We ask for flexibility in the case of issues that may arise. Technical issues should not impact a student’s grade or right to accommodations. 

Please make it clear to your students how they can contact you during the testing window if they have any questions or problems. It is impossible for OLR to proctor tests given that staff is working remotely. Please keep that in mind as you design your assessments. 

What should I do for international students in my class who are in the process of returning to their home countries?

It is likely that, with the decision to continue the rest of the semester online, many of our international students will decide to try to return home in the coming weeks. Many of these students are experiencing unique stressors. Please give thoughtful consideration to these students’ special circumstances, including their travel schedules. Also, please be aware that students who will now be in other parts of the world or the U.S. may be participating in synchronous class sessions from multiple time zones.

Can research continue?

Research activities that cannot be delayed, cannot be conducted remotely, and that abide strictly by public health protocols for social distancing may continue. There should be no direct contact with human subjects in research; all contact with human subjects should be remote. Click here for additional information about conducting research during the COVID-19 pandemic. Questions about faculty and student research activities should be directed to one's department chair or dean. For questions about research activity supported through UDRI, faculty should contact Allan Crasto.

How might the extension of online course work affect tenure reviews and applications?

The provost's office is in discussion with the deans about adjustments that might be made to tenure timelines for pre-tenure faculty members. 

Will my department office remain open?

Please consult your department chair about access to the department office or to office staff. Please remember that, for reasons of public health, department staff are expected to work remotely to the greatest extent possible. 

Will students still submit teaching evaluations?

Yes, student evaluations of teaching will continue to be conducted at the end of the semester. The survey period, due dates and messaging campaign will remain unaltered. Students will be unable to complete the SET surveys in a classroom, so it would be important for instructors to encourage students to complete their SET surveys. Instructors and students can access their SET surveys and monitor completion progress at http://go.udayton.edu/set.

Are we expected to continue office hours (virtually)?

Faculty members should continue to make themselves available to students for questions and consultation about their coursework or research. Faculty should inform their students about how best to reach them and communicate with them. Office hours can be handled in a number of ways including Google Chat, phone and Zoom. Faculty can find resources on the Keep Teaching site for setting up virtual office hours through Zoom. Students will be juggling both synchronous and asynchronous classes. Just as synchronous classes need to be conducted at their scheduled face-to-face day and time, it will be helpful to provide consistency in office hours and availability.  

Does this decision affect degree programs that already are offered online?

Online degree programs, such as MBA@Dayton, Law@Dayton, the Doctor of Education (EdD) in Leadership for Organizations, and others offered in partnership with 2U or developed in-house will continue uninterrupted on the standard academic schedules they follow. 

What about study abroad?

All summer education abroad programs and off-campus immersion trips are canceled. Please read this message to fall study-abroad students sent May 8.

Am I expected to work if I am ill or in self-quarantine?

Please consult your physician if you are feeling ill, notify your department chair, and do not come to campus for any reason. Many forms of work can continue in self-quarantine, depending upon your home circumstances. Please consult your physician and go to the University’s COVID-19 resources webpage for updates: go.udayton.edu/coronavirus. Student illnesses should be handled using standard policies and practices, with the understanding that there are likely to be more than the usual number of illnesses in the next two months.

Does the recently passed Families First Act apply to me?

No. As an employer of more than 500 employees, the act does not apply to the University of Dayton. Please follow previous guidance regarding the issues addressed in the act.

Has the university established a deadline for deciding whether classes will resume in person in the fall?

No decision has been made at this time regarding the mode in which classes will be offered during the fall term. We hope to have that decision made by mid-summer.

If non-tenured faculty are not renewed, will efforts be made to rehire those faculty if possible? For example, could faculty be given contracts for spring 2021 if they are not renewed for fall 2020?

Faculty hiring will be based on enrollments. If spring enrollment appears to be stronger than fall, additional faculty will be hired to cover those courses.

Regarding lecturer promotions, will promotions already awarded go forward and will promised salary increases be honored? And if a lecturer is not renewed and rehired at a later time, will the clock start over in terms of their eligibility for promotion?

Yes. Promotions already awarded go forward and will promised salary increases be honored

Impact on the clock for eligibility for promotions will be influenced by the length of time until rehire and how many years they had served prior to the non-renewal.

Since lecturers will not technically be separated from the university, but rather "not renewed" are they eligible for unemployment? And, what is the start date? Would it be May 16? Also, will May 16 be the "end date" for healthcare coverage if a lecturer is not renewed? And, several faculty indicated that their children were benefiting from tuition remission (or about to commit to UD); would tuition remission be extended to those students if their parents are not renewed?

Faculty who are not renewed in May will receive benefits through July 31, 2020. If they do not receive a contract in July, they then will be offered COBRA coverage for health, dental vision and FSAs.

A non-tenure track employee notified of non-renewal for fall would be eligible to apply for unemployment and should follow up with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services for further instruction and information on eligibility and payment details.

Employees receiving notification between April 1, 2020, and May 1, 2020, of their layoff and separation from the University as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, who do not qualify as a University retiree, and who (absent this COVID-19 layoff/separation) would have been eligible for the University's tuition remission/assistance benefit for their dependent children, shall be eligible for two additional consecutive semesters (commencing no later than the fall 2020 semester) of undergraduate tuition remission/assistance and Intensive English Program for their dependent children who are either currently enrolled at the University, or who have been admitted, but have not commenced attending classes. Dependents of employees who exhaust their eligibility for tuition remission/assistance benefits and continue as undergraduate students pursuing a first bachelor's degree at UD will be considered for university-funded need-based grants and/or merit-based scholarships just as other undergraduate students. Any laid off/separated individual using this benefit for this extended benefit period will need to claim the child on their tax return.

Will lecturers who are not renewed who opted to receive their paychecks over 24 pays rather than 18 continue to receive those paychecks through August even though they are not renewed?

Yes. They will receive the full amount deferred to summer payments.

Who and how will the university decide which full-time non-tenure track faculty is "essential?"

The provost made decisions in consultation with deans and input from department chairs. Decisions were most strongly influenced by faculty member's roles and responsibilities.

Will lecturers who have been engaged for summer teaching be paid at the same rate (1/12 of their salary) if they are not renewed?

Lecturers who have not yet received contracts for fall will be paid at the same rate, 1/12 of their salary per three-credit course. The exception would be in the case of lecturers for whom nonrenewal was planned, i.e., temporary replacement lines, prior to the disruption. These faculty will be paid at the adjunct rate.

Will the university prioritize FT-NTT faculty positions over adjunct positions? Or is UD more likely to retain adjuncts and sever those considered full-time who require benefits?

One reason for our increased hiring of FT-NTT faculty in recent years was to reduce dependence on adjunct faculty. Wherever possible the University will prioritize FT-NTT faculty over adjuncts.


Are any staff able to work from home allowed to work on campus? Can I obtain equipment needed to work remotely from the University?

All employees whose work is able to be performed remotely should continue working remotely and find resources at go.udayton.edu/keepworking. Laptops are in short supply, but faculty and staff needing laptops to work remotely should contact UDit. While efforts are ongoing to purchase more, such requests should be made only if there is a significant need. Contact UDit by calling 937-229-3888, emailing ITservicecenter@udayton.edu or using the website to submit an online request at https://udayton.edu/udit/help/index.php.  

Will hours change for staff continuing to work on campus?

Unless the situation changes and the University establishes different expectations, staff whose work must be performed on campus and who are well are expected to work on campus as usual.

What if my work must be performed on campus, but I have a health condition that places me at high risk if I contract COVID-19?

Employees who are at increased risk for developing COVID-19 (should they be exposed to the virus) due to underlying health conditions or other factors are urged to consult their physician about steps they can take to protect their health. If increased risks are certified by their physician, employees should contact the Office of Human Resources about potential accommodations.

What health precautions should I take if I am required to work on campus?

The University continues to require employees to work from home whenever possible and when feasible with business operations. Employees may only come to campus for essential business purposes or operations that cannot be effectively or productively performed remotely, as determined by their supervisor. To come to campus, an employee must have supervisor approval; be free of COVID-19 symptomswear a face covering when near others; maintain social distancing of at least six feet; and wash hands frequently. Employees are responsible for providing face coverings; here is information from CDC on how to make, wear and care for face coverings. All employees are encouraged to abide by public health officials' recommendations for reducing the spread of COVID-19. 

Managers and supervisors must not pressure anyone to come to work if they are ill or need to stay at home to care for ill dependents. 

I'm a supervisor. What if someone reports to me they have COVID-19?

If you receive a report, confirmed or unconfirmed, that a member of your team has been exposed to or has contracted coronavirus, please call the Health Center at 937-229-3131 for guidance. Please remember not to share the person's health information with colleagues. This is a violation of their privacy, and this information is protected by HIPAA and other laws. We continue to be in close contact with regional public health officials to investigate cases and trace potential contacts. 

I'm a supervisor. What should I do if I suspect someone has COVID-19?

Supervisors (with the support and involvement of HR as needed) should ask employees who are exhibiting symptoms to go home and contact their health care provider for further evaluation, including when it is safe to return to work. We ask staff to cooperate with supervisors for the well-being of all.

Can I adjust my work hours if I work off campus?

Staff who are working remotely should work with their unit leaders and supervisors to determine their work schedules.

What should I do if I have been told by public health officials to self-isolate or quarantine at home?

Employees who are required to self-isolate or self-quarantine (by public health officials or guidelines, health care providers or the University), and whose work is not suitable for telecommuting, should use paid sick leave during the period they are in isolation or quarantine.

Will paid leave be available for staff whose work must be performed on campus, but who also are unable to arrange care for non-sick individuals, such as school-aged children whose schools have closed related to COVID-19 concerns?

Employees should use limited sick leave to care for immediate family members who are not ill but need care due to any COVID-19 related closures of schools or daycare centers, or for other breakdowns in care arrangements. Employees are not permitted to bring children or elders to work with them, even if the children or elders are well.

If I am caring for an sick family member or am able to work while in self-isolation or self-quarantine, will I have to use sick leave? 

Employees who must provide care to immediate family members who are ill are urged to use the available sick or vacation time per the policy; refer to the Benefits and Leave of Absence Handbook or your union contract (bargaining-unit members) or Benefits and Leaves of Absence Handbook for Faculty for additional details..

Employees who are required to self-isolate or self-quarantine (by public health officials or guidelines, healthcare providers or the University), and whose work is not suitable for telecommuting, should use paid sick leave during the period they are in isolation or quarantine.

What if I have exhausted my sick leave?

Employees with insufficient accrued sick leave should contact the Office of Human Resources.

Does the recently passed Families First Act apply to me?

No. As an employer of more than 500 employees, the act does not apply to the University of Dayton. Please follow previous guidance regarding the issues addressed in the act.


The University will continue to require employees to work from home whenever possible and when feasible with business operations.

Employees may only come to campus for essential business purposes or operations that cannot be effectively or productively performed remotely, as determined by their supervisor. Supervisors should only approve employees coming to campus when there is an essential need for them to do so. They should continue working remotely.

To come to campus, an employee must have supervisor approval, be free of COVID-19 symptoms, and wear a face covering when near others or in public areas like hallways, restrooms, elevators, etc. Employees are responsible for providing face coverings as the University has a limited supply; here is information from CDC on how to make, wear and care for face coverings. If an employee is working alone in an enclosed work space (e.g., office or room), a face covering is not required.

Employees who come to campus under these very narrow circumstances should maintain social distancing of at least six feet; wash hands frequently; and, prior to coming to campus, perform a symptom assessment, which should include using a thermometer to monitor for fever and watching for coughing or trouble breathing. Employees who are sick with confirmed or presumed COVID-19 cannot return to campus until they are symptom-free without medication for 72 hours and it has been at least 7 days since symptoms began. Those who have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 should self-quarantine for 14 days and self-monitor for symptoms; they may return to campus after the quarantine if they remain asymptomatic. 

All employees are encouraged to abide by public health officials' recommendations for reducing the spread of COVID-19. You're also encouraged to follow these recommendations found in section 21c (page 9-10) of Ohio's Stay Healthy and Safe at Home Order.


All University travel remains canceled until further notice. We strongly recommend all students, faculty and staff reconsider any personal travel. 

As the situation may change quickly, students, faculty and staff planning any travel should check travel advisories from the CDC, U.S. Department of State and local health authorities prior to and during any travel. Be prepared for restrictions to or sudden changes to mobility. Anyone traveling must assess the risk to their ability to return to the U.S. and/or their ability to return to meet the requirements of their jobs. Anyone returning from travel must comply with all guidelines regarding quarantine, self-monitoring, etc. and be prepared to resume their work per their contract. 

Unfortunately, the University will not be able to provide assistance to faculty or staff in cases of personal travel.

Information current as of 11:38 a.m. April 4, 2020.


While the state of Ohio allowed child care centers to reopen May 31, we feel there are still many unknowns about the impact of COVID-19 on young children. Therefore, throughout the summer we will take the following steps to ensure we're providing as safe and secure of an environment as possible for our children and their families, as well as our staff, when we reopen. 

  • We will research how other child care centers are implementing the state's requirements and whether those measures are effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
  • The center will use the summer months to do its due diligence to ensure it is implementing the state's requirements effectively. 
  • We will solicit input from our families on what safety measures they would like to see in place before we reopen the center. A survey will be going out shortly.

The center's tentative goal for reopening is Aug. 3. The center will let families know as quickly as possible if this changes.

For additional questions, please email the Bombeck Center.
