Virtual Town Hall Meeting to Address Fall 2020 - Rescheduled to Aug. 18
University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) faculty and staff are invited to a virtual Town Hall Meeting on Fall 2020 hosted by Interim President Dr. Antonio D. Tillis and Senior Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs & Provost Dr. Eric Carl Link. The event, orginally scheduled for Aug. 13, will now be conducted on Aug. 18.
According to Dr. Link, faculty, staff and administrators have been working throughout the summer to ensure that UHD can deliver quality instruction and student support services despite the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This town hall will provide a chance to come together for a few moments and talk about the Fall 2020 plan, which is directly based on the conceptual framework proposed by the COVID-19 Response Taskforce,” he said. “Despite the ongoing pandemic, there remains that spark of electricity in the air that we all feel each August as we come together at the end of a summer to bring the campus to life and help students achieve their goals in a new academic year.”
UHD Community members must register to participate in the Town Hall and are also encouraged to send questions. After registering, a confirmation e-mail will be sent.
