Event Date: November 5, 2020
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Public Event:

Speakers: Timothy Kessler-Cleary (Assistant Dean of Student Engagement and Retention and Deputy Title IX Coordinator at Caldwell University) and Noah Welte (Associate Legal Counsel at Thomas More University)

Modern universities have never had to manage campus life during a global pandemic. There is plenty of guidance but no definitive, boots on the ground, playbook on how to operate during such a monumental public health challenge. Each campus has unique characteristics and circumstances; there’s no ‘model’ strategy that operationally tasked administrations can follow to safeguard their campuses. We do know this: what works for one university may not work for another, and not everything that works well in theory works well in practice.

This webinar is an opportunity to hear about and share what has worked – and what has not – among higher education institutions. This is not just another review of current CDC guidance, etc., but an opportunity to learn from the ‘staff sergeants’ who have been deployed forward in the war against Covid-19. What you learn from this webinar might save lives – and improve your campus public health responses.

Please join our front-line experienced presenters, Timothy Kessler-Cleary (Assistant Dean, Student Engagement and Retention and Deputy Title IX Coordinator at Caldwell University) and Noah Welte (Associate Legal Counsel at Thomas More University) as they share their insights on the various considerations, responses, and policies schools have made to curb the spread of Covid-19 and provide for a safe campus life. Topics include equity in access, privacy concerns in hybrid and remote learning environments, quarantine and isolation practices, and the intersection between state guidance and institutional policy.

This interactive session will provide opportunity for participants to share their ideas, perspectives, and experiences in addition to those of the presenters. Participants will consider how the topics and practices discussed might relate and/or be applicable to their individual institutions. If you are unable to join us live, please remember that this webinar will be available for viewing in our Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law & Policy Webinar Library.
