Coronavirus Updates - Feb. 27, 2020

Information about the coronavirus has been leading news cycles across the globe. We are aware that the virus is impacting our member organizations in a variety of ways (students and their families, faculty/staff, programs, admissions, corporate outreach, alumni events, and corporate recruitment efforts). In the midst of this impact, we are providing several opportunities for members to come together to share information and support one another. 

  • Flash Survey 
    Please complete our brief, one-question flash survey to let us know if your school or company has been impacted in any way. Share positive actions you have taken to support others during this time in the comments section.
  • Virtual Round Table Discussions 
    Please join us for these opportunties to connect with colleagues to share resources and plans for future action.
