You all have received emails from UMB officials regarding continued preparation and response to COVID-19 (known as coronavirus).

We anticipate being able to manage all requests virtually, in observance of the campus guidance issued March 12, 2020 implementing teleworking. The safety of our students, faculty and staff are our top priority. Click here to review updates to OIS services.
