UNC-Chapel Hill and the Friday Center are closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19. In response, the University announced that several new precautionary measures will be in effect. In an effort to protect our community and “flatten the curve” of the virus’ spread, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our spring Community Classroom enrichment offerings, effective immediately. Full refunds will be issued for all enrolled courses.
