Important Message Regarding COVID-19

To our valued students, visitors, and partners:

Based on new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Arizona Department of Health Services, ASU has made the decision to extend the online delivery of regular in-person classes through the end of the Spring semester and to limit staffing across the university to keep everyone as safe as possible.  As such, Levin Center staff will begin working remotely effective Wednesday, March 18.  However, we will still be available to assist via email, phone, and other electronic resources.

To reach our team during regular business hours (M-F, 8 AM to 5 PM), you may contact us:

  • Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute: 480-727-8525 and leave a message, or email
  • General information: 480-965-2115; if no staff are available, the call will forward to our associate director for assistance.  Please leave a message or email

Please note email will likely result in a quicker response.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation.  We appreciate your support and will do our best to assist you as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Please be safe and stay positive!
