Coronavirus Updates

When the COVID-19 pandemic began to hit the United States, Rhodes acted quickly and thoughtfully to ensure the health of our community by shifting to remote learning. Thanks to the excellence and resilience of our community, we were successful. Going forward, the health and safety of our community remains our top priority. We have charted a deliberate path that will enable our students, faculty, and staff to return to campus. Although we cannot control external factors, our success will depend on the implementation of comprehensive health and safety protocols and a culture of mutual responsibility among our community members.

Given the high level of concern for the health and safety of the Rhodes community and with a state of emergency declared in the City of Memphis and Shelby County, access restrictions have been implemented to reduce person-to-person contact.

Help take care of yourself and protect others by following these guidelines for social distancing.

Rhodes places the highest priority on the health, safety and well-being of our community, while being committed to the continuity of academic programs and essential functions.

In response to the international coronavirus pandemic, and with concern for the health and safety of all of our students and faculty, the college has decided to cancel all summer international programs, including Maymesters, international internships, and international fellowships. Fall study abroad has also been canceled.

Members of the Rhodes community with questions or comments may use this form. Staff will be reviewing submissions and working to respond within 24 hours. 

The Admission Office remains open and the college welcomes prospective students and their families to visit campus.
