...and Moving into the Future

Speaker Date: May 28, 2021

This past year for educational institutions across the country has been an adventure in uncharted waters. Nothing could have prepared University Presidents, staff and faculty to preplan for such a year. As the Covid-19 virus began in spread last March there were a lot of mix messages about how to respond.

Fortunately, the school year was nearing the end of the academic year before the full blunt of the virus hit. Universities began to plan during the summer again without clear directions on the full impact of the virus.

The reality of the full impact of response had universities facing dramatic financial expenses and the reduction of revenues from online learning-refund of housing fees and meal plans. You also had students postponing their attendance. It was a perfect storm that no one could have anticipated and had a plan for dealing with such an event.

President Lugo will share with us Queens’ respond and how the University plans to chart a course for the future.
