SIU Today - April 20, 2020
As business manager for the College of Science, Julie Virgo is one of those hard-working, go-to people who ensures things get done efficiently on campus.
A team from SIU Carbondale last week delivered its first round of a key substance needed for COVID-19 tests to health authorities in Springfield. SIU was the first university in the state to do so.
As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, many college students struggle to continue their education. Some lack adequate technology or internet access to make the sudden transition to online learning. Others lost jobs due to the closure of businesses or can’t work due to the closure of schools, putting stress on budgets for necessities like food, medication, rent and diapers.
Virtual interviews with the three finalists for SIU Carbondale chancellor continue this week. During their respective two-day remote interviews, each of the candidates will hold a public forum that will be streamed live at chancellor.siu.edu/search and posted on the site afterwards. No access codes are required.
The Office of Information Technology is reminding faculty and staff that it is offering online Q&A sessions for Microsoft Teams (Teams) in lieu of in-person training until the end of the semester.
