On Monday, March 16, GGU closed its San Francisco building until at least April 7. This follows a decision on March 9 to have the School of Undergraduate Studies, the Ageno School of Business, the Braden School of Taxation, and the School of Accounting move their classes to a web-conference format. The law school did the same on March 12. This will stay in effect indefinitely.

Resources for how to prepare for and initiate web conferencing classes are below.
