Many leaders are walking a fine line between optimism that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us and caution about overpromising a traditional campus experience for the fall. In this panel discussion, leaders will share how they’re managing a multitude of variables and projections as they consider options for a return to campus.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss variables that impact the feasibility of providing in-person services, instruction, and a campus living experience.
  • Recognize strategies for evaluating return-to-campus planning scenarios.
  • Identify criteria and concerns about including requirements such as vaccines and CDC recommendations in reopening plans.
