Concerns about a possible Wuhan coronavirus outbreak
loom on the horizon in the United States. The impact on colleges and
universities, with campus populations living, studying, and
working in close proximity, is worth planning for in terms of
health, business operations, and financial concerns. NACUBO has
joined forces with the American College Health Association (ACHA) to offer a program drawing
on the efforts of an institution that is at the forefront of planning
for virus containment.
This webcast will
feature presentations from higher education public health
and business officer experts. Each will provide their
own knowledge of overall crisis and emergency
response, with a focus on student and campus
community health, business continuity, and safety issues.
Hear the lessons learned from campuses that faced outbreaks
in the past and how Georgetown University, Stanford University, and
University of Maryland Baltimore have approached the planning process. You’ll also learn ways to address
the right questions such as when to suspend classes, restrict activities, and implement
evacuation planning, as well as when and how to establish quarantines and
properly staff them.
If your campus
hasn’t initiated preparations, you’ll learn why you should and how
to get started. If you are already working on a plan, you’ll have the
opportunity to benchmark your efforts with those at another institution.
This session is brought to you in cooperation with the American College Health Association (ACHA):
Note: This session is being recorded; the recording will be available to all registrants 1-2 weeks after the broadcast and will remain available for one year after the air date.
