While there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the MIU campus or community, we are taking all precautions at this time. For this reason, Visitors Weekends have been suspended. We're hoping to resume offering Visitors Weekends starting in June.

In the meantime, we're preparing to host a series of live webinars featuring top members of the MIU faculty and a student panel.
