COVID-19's Impact on the 2020 Summer Language Institute

We are pleased to report that, even though we were compelled to stay home this summer, we were able to run the SLI programs successfully and safely in 2020 via remote instruction. We are very proud of our students’ accomplishments, and deeply grateful to our students and faculty alike for their willingness and ability to adapt!

It is still our desire and intent to hold the programs abroad in the summer of 2021 - but should it continue to be necessary to refrain from traveling internationally, we are prepared to remotely carry our students forward on their degree paths. We will continue to monitor the situation in coordination with SOU’s Emergency Response team and with our sister universities, and provide updates in regards to our next sessions as they become available.

We also recognize that the pandemic is creating impacts on teachers, schools, and districts, so as always: whether you are a current student, a new applicant, or interested in our program, please reach out to us if you have questions or require assistance modifying your degree plan in these circumstances. 

Once again, we extend our sincere best to you and your families, friends, and colleagues, and we look forward to staying connected with you.
