Centenary University extends online classes for rest of semester

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – Centenary University is extending online classes for the rest of the semester, according to Centenary University President Bruce Murphy.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has issued an executive order (104) directing all institutions of higher learning to cease in-person instruction until further notice, Murphy said.

As a result, Centenary University has made the following decisions:

  • All classes will move to online instruction for the remainder of the semester.
  • All public events will be cancelled until further notice and events such as Academic Symposium, Leadership Awards, Commencement, etc., will be considered on a case by case basis.
  • University offices will continue to remain open.
  • We urge our campus community to continue to practice social distancing, as recommended by national health experts, to slow disease transmission.

Centenary will follow the ongoing guidance issued by Governor Murphy, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the New Jersey Department of Health, Murphy said.
