Starting this week, Syracuse University Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives and Innovation J. Michael Haynie will host “SU Safe Weekly Roundup,” a series of weekly virtual update sessions to assist University community members in preparing for the Fall 2020 semester.
The hour-long Zoom sessions will be held on Fridays from 1 to 2 p.m. and will feature Haynie and other University leaders and subject matter experts speaking on issues such as public health, the student experience, teaching, learning and researching during a pandemic. The meetings seek to provide clarity on the path forward to in-person instruction for the Fall 2020 semester; answer questions and address concerns of community members about returning to campus; and elicit feedback and suggestions.
The sessions can be accessed through this Zoom link using an syr.edu email account. Each session is limited to 500 attendees.
The meetings will be captioned and will run in a “webinar” format. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions via the chat function.
The dates of the sessions are:
