We all owe a big “thank you” to the many people who helped us get the campus fully back in operation last week through extraordinarily difficult circumstances.
Campus Facilities Services staff worked long hours to have iced-over sidewalks and parking lots ready when campus reopened. Even while campus was closed, many essential staff, such as campus police, were out braving the elements and slick pavements to make and keep conditions safe for others. Campus Housing staff went door-to-door to make sure students had adequate food supplies. Students, staff, and faculty kept clinics open to provide patient care. Still others worked to keep laboratories functioning, servers operating, and communications flowing. The Emergency Preparedness team coordinated superbly.
The experience was a test of our planning, and we withstood the test well, but if you have suggestions to offer, we’d be glad to hear them.
