COVID-19 Update (Spring Semester 2021): Following guidance from the University, we continue to be under reduced operations and will be through the end of this semester, at which point we will re-evaluate based on guidance at that time. This means only approved essential researchers/employees can use Itasca facilities with 1 person per cabin. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and wellbeing of our University and Itasca communities. If you have questions, contact us at . Researchers looking for creative ideas to generate data? We at Itasca have these resources to enable new research ideas.
