COVID-19 Update from the Program

The School of Undergraduate Studies (SUS) will continue to hold all classes online and virtually through Summer 2021 semester, which means we will not hold any on-campus meetings. SUS and CIIS will continue to monitor the situation daily and will follow current medical guidelines to ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff. In SUS we feel especially fortunate to have experienced faculty who work well in the online and virtual modalities, and we look forward to working with you as you join our vibrant community. We will keep everyone apprised of our plans via the CIIS website/Canvas Cafe. If you have any questions, please contact Yue Ming Huang at
