A message from Jim Hart for New & Prospective Students


IWS is closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We will provide frequent updates by email and this page to keep the IWS community informed and help you make appropriate and timely plans. This Response Team is consulting experts and continuing to explore many options and contingencies based on the emerging global reality.

Current Requirements & Recommendations

  • Pray for the containment of the virus, the emergence of effective treatments, the minimization of its impact throughout the world, and for wisdom for the IWS team making preparations for June.
  • Heed local and national authorities (such as the USA’s Center for Disease Control) concerning best practices to keep yourselves and your families healthy, and support containment of the virus. The World Health Organization is another commendable resource.
  • Students: If you have reason to think your ability to complete your classwork may be affected by the outbreak, please get in touch with your instructors and IWS Registrar Mark Murray as soon as practical.
