Planning for a low-risk return to campus was the subject of a Campus Conversation on Tuesday. The panel, which included public health experts, maintenance and ventilation leaders, and the head of Berkeley’s People and Culture department, discussed what Berkeley has done to prepare for the fall semester when the vast majority of students will be returning to campus.
Topics included ventilation, vaccines, masks, sanitization, flexible work arrangements, psychological worries and management expectations, among other issues.
In case you missed it, a recording of Tuesday’s Campus Conversation is available.
Some of these topics were also touched on during a previous Campus Conversation that took place on Monday. Carol Christ, chancellor; Paul Alivisatos, the outgoing executive vice chancellor and provost; and Cathy Koshland, the incoming interim executive vice chancellor and provost — reflected on the end of the 2020-2021 academic year and took questions from the campus community. A recording of Monday’s Campus Conversation is also available.
