The International Town & Gown Association and the National League of Cities University Communities Council are partnering to produce a webinar on the implementation of college reopening plans, discussing the impact on the community and the role of institutions and municipalities in working together to keep students and local residents safe. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, August 5, noon-1pm (EDT) and will focus on distribution of supplies, education about risks and guidelines, and fair enforcement of pandemic-related restrictions. We all hope that policies that have been carefully crafted over the summer are carried out in vigilant, equitable, and impactful ways in order to have a healthy semester. Our panelists will share how universities and cities are collaborating to meet that goal. To register, click here. Seats are limited. This session will be recorded.
