COVID-19 Update

The situation with COVID-19 continues to change at a rapid pace. It is posing unprecedented challenges for the health and wellbeing of our communities and for the continuing operations of La Trobe University. Events over the weekend and earlier this week have necessitated a rapid review of the University’s response – in particular the ban on large scale events, compulsory self-isolation for all visitors to Australia, and the Premier’s announcement of a State of Emergency.

La Trobe is therefore announcing a range of measures to help members of our community remain as safe as possible, while ensuring minimal disruption to teaching and research activities. Our campuses will remain open and our teaching and research will continue, but with some significant changes to the way we work. As a precautionary measure, from Tuesday 17 March onwards all non-essential events that do not involve delivery or support of teaching or research activity will be cancelled or postponed until the end of June, regardless of the number of participants. This includes events such as graduation ceremonies; public lectures and events; events run by all Student Union Associations and student clubs and societies; sporting events and planned ceremonies.

As a result of this decision, the '2020 Kuwait Alumni Event' on 23 March 2020 is now postponed. We thank you for your understanding and hope you will be able to join us at another La Trobe event in the future.

If you have any questions in relation to this event please do not hesitate to contact Jane Kasby at j.kasby@latrobe.edu.au

Due to the uncertainties arising from COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), La Trobe University has made the difficult decision to postpone some planned international travel in March.

It is with regret and disappointment that we postpone this scheduled alumni event.

We hope to reschedule these activities when the threat of COVID-19 reduces, and look forward to sharing our wonderful alumni events with you then. In the meantime, please be sure to stay connected to your alumni community by following our Facebook page and connecting on LinkedIn.

We sincerely hope you and your family remain safe during this time.
