SAM Guidance on University Restrictions Related to COVID-19

posted on March 12, 2020

We continue to track news and resources related to COVID-19 and the impact it is having within our university communities. While we ask that you take appropriate precautions to create a more safe and healthy environment on campus and within your community, we recognize that this pandemic is generating a rapidly evolving response by universities and municipalities that may be impacting all aspects of your life. Sigma Alpha Mu International Fraternity’s staff and volunteers are committed to supporting each of our members and chapters, especially during these uncertain times.
