New Normal Coming to Newman University

To quote a song from a Disney movie you probably saw many years ago... "It's a whole new world". If only Aladdin was real, we'd certainly wish for better health for our world and a whole different reality than we are currently living!

But, Newman faculty, staff and administration believe we will overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 outbreak as our community comes together.

As you no doubt have heard by now -- all in-person classes have been moved online for the remainder of Spring 2020.

So what do you do when classes start again March 30? Follow the information in this email and you'll be good to go!
