COVID-19 Operations and Business Continuity Committee

Read a summary of the committee report


Prior to and after the Spring 2020 campus closure, the committee provides the College’s Senior Staff options for the shutdown, maintenance and operation of campus.  The work includes campus operational guidelines for faculty, staff, students, buildings, and programs as well as the development of appropriate guidelines and policies to ensure community safety.  The committee also provides day to day operational support as new questions or issues arise as the campus closure continues.

The committee appreciates that many within the campus community have questions and welcome your input and feedback.

Please share your feedback and ideas with the committee.
