“Prepare a summary report on the financial impact COVID-19 had on your campus. In specific dollars and cents terms, what were the big impacts, what the campus did to respond, and what you expect will be the trailing effects in coming months. It's a good time to take stock of what you as a community have been through.”

David Maddox, NACUBO Consultant and Former COO for the Global Innovation Exchange at the University of Washington

“Find ways to visibly, joyfully thank all students who stayed enrolled on your campus this year and encourage them to return in the fall if they are undergraduates or need additional credits to complete their degree. Reach out to students who withdrew and encourage them to reach out to advising resources if they need support developing a return-to-school plan.”

Terri Dautcher, NACUBO Consultant and Former Faculty Member at Plymouth State University
