Student affairs divisions have demonstrated great flexibility and innovation during the past 18 months as scientists learned more about the coronavirus and offered guidance that regularly changed as new information became available. When effective vaccines became available earlier this year, you could almost hear a collective sigh of relief across U.S. higher education. We did not anticipate that vaccine hesitancy would allow virus variants to flourish, and now we’re in a similar situation as we open this year as we were in 2020. Join your VPSA and AVP colleagues for some frank discussion about sustaining access to the educational experience. Expect to discuss policies, practices, and strategies related to vaccinations, visitors, prevention measures, testing, and more.
