Institute Network

The ILR is closely monitoring the covid-19 situation. The health and welfare of our members and instructors is our utmost concern. At present, all Slippery Rock University buildings are closed; this includes the home of the ILR, the Fowler building. The ILR Board of Directors has canceled the Spring 2020 semester and will make a final determination with regards to the Fall 2020 semester during the summer of 2020 after more information is available from Governor Wolf and SRU. Members and instructors can monitor their email, this website, and our Facebook page for updates. We hope you are well and safe, and we look forward to the next time we can be together.

Please see the SRU website for further information about covid-19: your paragraph here
