Welcome. This spreadsheet aggregates data about colleges and universities closing and/or shifting from face-to-face to online instruction due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Created and minded by Bryan Alexander (https://bryanalexander.org/), with help from many fine folks. Christine Wolff-Eisenberg (Ithaka S+R) did heroic data and formatting additions. In the media: https://www.npr.org/2020/03/09/813750481/more-than-20-colleges-cancel-in-person-classes-in-response-to-coronavirus https://www.insidehighered.com/blogs/learning-innovation/covid-19-online-learning-and-mission-driven-learning-designers https://www.timeshighereducation.com/news/coronavirus-classroom-closings-quickly-multiplying-us https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2020/03/10/roundup-coronavirus-news-mon-march-9 https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/education/2020/03/11/coronavirus-college-closings-list-online-classes/5022256002/ https://campustechnology.com/articles/2020/03/11/coronavirus-response-count-of-campus-closures-continues-to-rise.aspx?s=tsy

***Note: we are migrating our efforts to the data and visualization maintained by Entangled: https://www.entangled.solutions/coronavirus-he/. This is now a historical document.

Folks have created projects based on this spreadsheet, which is great: https://www.entangled.solutions/coronavirus-he/ and https://public.tableau.com/profile/tableautsy#!/vizhome/closures/Sheet1

However, this page is being overwhelmed by demand. Google Docs is having a hard time keeping up with it. For now, if you can't edit and would like to add or update something, please contact Bryan here: https://bryanalexander.org/contact-bryan/. We're working on it with Google.
