Join us to discuss how to operationalize re-entry testing and COVID-19 vaccinations for the fall. 


Many campuses expect to reopen fully in-person in the Fall for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began. In anticipation, institutions are in the early stages of planning for what this might entail from a health and wellness perspective for faculty, staff, and students. To buoy this planning, many are seeking a space where they can come together with other leaders from institutions across the country, share ideas, and learn from others’ best current thinking. 

Join us online for an in-depth, two-hour brainstorming and discussion session with your peers to share strategies and provide space to benchmark and ask questions about re-entry testing and vaccinations. You will participate actively in large and small group discussions framed around questions such as these:  

  • What progress and plans have others made in planning for re-entry testing and vaccinations? 
  • What have been the lessons learned from previous stages of reopening? 
  • What are the community considerations you want to take into account?
  • What existing policies do we need to re-examine/revise in anticipation of reopening?  
  • What will the impact be on staffing? 

We understand that this type of planning is murky and generates more questions than answers. Our aim is to get you started in how to approach answering some of these questions and create some guiding principles to move forward. We will be surveying registrants in advance to tailor the conversation to the largest concerns and needs. 


Who Should Attend

Any institutional leaders or members of task forces related to the reopening of campus will benefit from this training. Our expert facilitators each come from institutions of very different demographics, and our aim is to provide useful conversations for those from schools of differing profiles, whether it’s large public vs. small private, urban vs. rural or those who have already opened in some capacity vs. those who are facing re-opening for the first time. Our conversation will be broad-ranging and include considerations across faculty, staff, and student groups.

This two-hour virtual training will begin with some background on how the expert facilitators institutions have begun to tackle reopening for fall and will feature discussions around the following topics. The questions listed are meant to be illustrative and are not exhaustive: 

Re-Entry Testing

  • Will this be required to return to campus? If so, for whom?  
  • How do you tailor your approach for specific populations such as student athletes, Greek students returning for "rush", international students who may not be able to isolate prior to coming to campus, etc. 
  • How will compliance be enforced? 


  • Will this be required to return to campus? If so, for whom? 
  • How do you examine your immunization policies? Do they exist?  Do they need revision?  
  • When can we anticipate herd immunity and how will that affect the approach?  
  • How do you respond to those who do not want the vaccine?
