Private Press Panel on June 4: Real-World Challenges of Getting Back to Campus

Media only webcast - Ask questions of panelists in advance or during the webcast. Private questions also accepted.

University and college leaders answer questions about their planning challenges including considerations of seat space, faculty time, safety, staffing, and the hundreds of factors involved in the decision to get back on campus. Panelists may not be in a position to state exactly what their campus will do in Fall 2020 but they will frankly address questions from the media related to this topic.
