As COVID-19 continues to impact our global community, institutions of higher education have had to reconsider courses, expectations, and evaluation schematics. In this light, we gathered key information from our partners and our task forces to support institutions as they work through these challenging times into a single all-in-one guide. We will also continue to share additional resources here.
