Faculty and staff seeking the latest information and guidance on Boise State University’s reintegration plan are invited to a town-hall style Zoom session at 11 a.m. Thursday, July 30.
Boise State is welcoming its students back to campus this fall to a future-facing blend of in-person, online and hybrid courses, lab work and field research designed to keep students safe, on track to reach their academic goals and meaningfully connected to each other and their faculty.
The goal is to keep everyone safe and the campus open through the end of in-person classes at fall break in November. But it will require faculty, staff, students and visitors to be committed to working to stem and slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing facial coverings throughout campus, practicing physical distancing, increasing personal and public hygiene, and being diligent about checking their own symptoms each day – and staying away from campus if they show any signs of illness.
Associate Vice President for Communications and Marketing Greg Hahn will moderate. Among the leaders and health experts on the call will be:
- Alicia Estey, chief of staff and vice president for compliance, who chairs the reintegration committee
- Maureen Welcker, the university’s new public health officer
- Kathryn Hughes, medical and public health advisor
- Shawn Miller, associate vice president for human resource services
- Suzy Arnette, director of environmental health and safety
- Tony Roark, interim provost and vice president for academic affairs
- Jim Munger, former vice provost and member of the reintegration committee
- Leslie Webb, vice president for student affairs and retention
Boise State faculty and staff interested in attending should register in advance for this virtual event. Please submit any questions you have during the registration process. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with access instructions. The town hall will be limited to 1,000 participants, but individual divisions are scheduling follow-up discussions in the weeks to come.
