Join us for the third in a series of webinars, Less Talk, More Action: Tactical Topics to Return to Campus, jointly sponsored by SCUP’s North Atlantic Region, BSA, and the BSA/SCUP College + University Roundtable focused on the impact of COVID-19 on campuses.

As the fall semester approaches, college and university campuses are readjusting their facilities in response to creating a safe environment for those students and faculty who are coming back to campus. There is much research and many studies informing such decisions.
This session will focus on requirements for a typical campus upgrade, as well as review of ASHRAE recommendations and strategies on how to improve campus safety in response to COVID-19 pandemic. This session will also address some of the unique challenges for an urban campus response for maintaining campus safety.
