Though roughly half of colleges opened their campuses this fall, not all of them were able to remain that way. For some, the reopening went relatively smoothly; for others, the semester got off to a chaotic start. In the worst cases, colleges were forced once again to close their campuses and restart another semester online. Now, as higher-ed reaches midterm, it’s time to look back at the lessons learned over the past year.
In “Running Campuses in a Pandemic: Hard Lessons from Fall, Prospects for Spring,” a panel of experts will gather for a virtual forum moderated by Nell Gluckman, a Chronicle senior reporter. What have they learned and what do they foresee as higher ed continues to navigate the challenges posed by Covid-19?
- What has the higher-education industry learned about testing for contagion, social distancing, contact tracing, quarantining, and the maze of municipal, state, and federal laws and guidelines?
- What technologies and campus-design principles have been effective?
- And what are the prospects for spring?
