Dean of Student Affairs
SEIKE Kumi

 The Japanese government has declared a nationwide state of emergency given the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 throughout the country. In response, APU has decided to postpone the start of 1st Quarter classes until May 6th and will hold classes online for 2nd Quarter as well.
The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Kyushu, especially in Fukuoka Prefecture, has increased dramatically and there are now over 50 confirmed cases within Oita Prefecture. Universities in Japan have been advised by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology to strengthen measures to avoid the creation of a COVID-19 infection cluster on their campuses.

 In light of the current situation, APU will continue to only permit online extracurricular activities for the time being. The Fitness Room will remain closed and both student organizations and individual students will not be allowed to use university facilities. I will notify the student body about recommencing regular extracurricular activities when we reach a stage where we are able to make that decision.

 We are aware of the tremendous effort that student organizations have put into their activities and the preparations that you have been making to welcome our new students. Our decision was very difficult, yet unavoidable. We would like to ask all of you, as both APU students and global citizens, to act responsibly and prioritize your own life as well as the lives of the people in your communities right now.

 APU student organizations have not given in to limitations the current situation has placed on them and continue to be creative in their online activities. You have found wonderful ways to support our new students who have begun their university life without stepping a single foot on the APU campus and I am proud of all of you. Letʼs continue to do what we must to overcome the current hardships faced by everyone around the world.
