Liability/Risk Statement.

The University of North Alabama aims to deliver its mission while protecting the health and safety of its faculty, staff, and students. As UNA continues to make public health-informed decisions, there will be changes to campus. While UNA is taking steps to follow federal, state, and local health recommendations and reduce opportunities for spread of infection, it is impossible to shield the campus community from all risk of infection. As such, all faculty, staff, and students are responsible for complying with UNA rules, directives, policies, etc.

What does this mean for students?

  • Modified classes will be offered online through the use of Canvas and videoconferencing technology, such as Zoom.
  • A limited number of computers are available for student use, most notably through Collier Library’s retrieval service.
  • Medical, counseling, disability, student recreation, and other services will continue to be offered.

What does this mean for parents?

The safety and well-being of your students, our campus, and our community is of utmost importance. We remain in contact with the Alabama Department of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. We have plans in place to address the need for isolation areas, food distribution, and other possible student needs. Please know that we are acting on behalf of your student to ensure their safety and well-being as a member of the UNA family.

To inquire about additional precautions UNA is taking, call 256-765-5000 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., and someone will respond to your questions as quickly as possible.

Now, more than ever, it is important that we find different ways to stay connected. IT Services has been working to expand our digital footprint to help us stay connected during this time.  As such, we have extended our campus WiFi to many parking lots and outside areas around campus.  You can come to campus and stay in your car or explore outside areas while connecting to our campus WiFi and maintaining your appropriate physical distance. 

Check out our campus map at https://www.una.edu/map.  Wherever you see this symbol, , you can access our campus WiFi just as if you were in your class with your classmates or studying in the library.  We are still working to improve our campus coverage and hope this will help you to remain connected to the campus, especially during this difficult time.
