Task Force Working Groups
The reopening process is managed by the President’s Task Force on COVID-19, composed of public health specialists and senior leaders of the University and led by President Bollinger. Four working groups advise the task force and steer University decision making on public health, education, facilities and campus life, and laboratory research. The working groups also advise the Council of Deans, the leaders of each of our 16 schools, who are designing their own reopening strategies to meet the specific needs of their faculty and students.
The Path Forward

Here's what we're doing now to prepare for a safe return to campus.
