As challenging as Fall semester planning was, the Spring semester will be as challenging or worse. A combination of elevated COVID-19 cases, holiday travel and gatherings, and the arrival of flu season have increased fear and uncertainty of the public health environment that schools will be operating in as students return for the Spring semester. What can schools do to optimize the health of their students and the community at large during the Spring semester?

Join Return to Campus: Preparing for the Spring Semester to hear from Ronnell Higgins, Chief of Yale Police & Director of Public Safety at Yale University, and Dan Pascale, Executive Vice President of Margolis Healy, one of the county’s premier consultancy firms focusing on safety, security, emergency preparedness, and compliance for educational institutions.

During the webinar, Dan and Ronell will discuss:

  • How higher educational institutions planned their Fall semesters
  • What we have learned from Fall semester experience
  • What schools are anticipating for Spring semester
  • How schools are adjusting their plans
  • Recommendations you can take to mitigate harm and maintain a safer learning environment
