Covid-19 Update - FSI 2020 Postponed to 2021

Following state and national guidelines regarding COVID-19, the 2020 Fairbanks Suzuki Institute was postponed to 2021. We made this difficult decision in order to prioritize the health and safety of our participants, faculty and staff. FSI is now tentatively scheduled for June 1-6, 2021. The university campus remains closed to outside events and to large meetings, but we are hopeful that these guidelines will be revised as the infection rate declines and the vaccine is made available in our communities.

When the institute was postponed, some of the FSI families opted to make a donation to the institute. We are grateful for this support and your dedication to keeping the institute alive and well in Fairbanks. Please be assured that we are working through this challenging time and doing our best to make an in person or online institute experience available to you.

Many other institutes have already pivoted to an online institute for next summer. This is not our preference, but it may be the only functional option for a June institute. As the state and university guidelines change, we will assess the options and let everyone know the plans for FSI 2021.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support through this difficult time. We look forward to seeing all of you in 2021!

Gail Johansen, with Michele Jeglum and Audra Carlson
