UHD Community Invited to Safe Return to Work Virtual Town Hall

The UHD Community is invited to attend a conversation with University Leadership during a Safe Return to Work Virtual Town Hall at 2 p.m., Wednesday, May 27 on Zoom.

According to Senior Vice President for Academic & Student Affairs and Provost  Dr. Eric Carl Link, the upcoming all-campus virtual event will give the entire UHD community an opportunity to talk through the safe reopening of campus in the post-COVID era.

“One of the keys to reopening campus is communication,” Link said. “I look forward to coming together as a UHD family to talk, ask questions and reflect on the opportunities and challenges that are before us.”

“There is a collective desire at UHD to make sure that, to the best of our ability, we can provide opportunities to re-energize campus life in a way that is responsible, true to our sense of purpose and identity, and which prioritizes the health and wellbeing of all students, staff, and faculty,” he added.

You must register for the Town Hall and also to send questions for the panelists. After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing information about joining the Town Hall.
