As is typical for March and April, the Umbra Institute is already making plans for our summer 2020 session. Our hope is that the crisis will be over soon and the summer session will run as scheduled. Our staff is scheduling field trips, coordinating professor teaching schedules, reviewing syllabi, and processing applications. The fall semester seems to be unaffected and will run as scheduled.
Students accepted to or applying for our fall and summer programs are invited to review our Guidance for Summer and Fall 2020 Applicants for more information about what they can expect for the rest of this year.
While the relatively new task for our team is monitoring the ongoing covid-19 situation, globally, our team has always worked hard to ensure the health and safety of our students and is used to collaborating with Italian authorities, the U.S. State Department, and others.
We also encourage applicants to contact their Umbra admissions advisor at any time with questions. Students who do not already have an assigned advisor can contact us at [email protected].
