March 25th, 2020
Dear students, faculty and staff members,
Given the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Government has defined the immediate present as a critical moment for the prevention of the wider spread of the virus in Japan and has requested the implementation of measures to reduce risk of transmission.
Sophia University previously decided to cancel all events and extracurricular activities scheduled through Tuesday, March 31st, and now extends this cancellation period to Sunday, April 26th.
We have arrived at this decision prioritizing our social responsibility to prevent further transmission as well as to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, and staff members. We request your cooperation and understanding in this matter.
∗ You will be informed of decisions regarding new semester guidance sessions starting on April 13th as soon as they have been made.
