Strategies to Prevent and Respond to College-based Infectious Diseases and Outbreaks

October 20-21, 2020 (tentative date) 

Deadline for Submissions is August 17, 2020

With the arrival of COVID-19, our nation was reminded of the tremendous toll that infectious diseases can have on our students and our learning communities. This summit is designed to provide institutions with best practices and strategies for how to prepare and respond to vaccine and non-vaccine preventable diseases, such as COVID-19. This summit will provide an update on university response to COVID-19 and will explore strategies for mass vaccinations. The goal of this summit is to provide learners with strategies on how they can prevent infectious disease on campus and to provide them with the knowledge they need to effectively contain these diseases when an outbreak occurs.

We’re specifically looking for submissions that address the following:

  1. Campus response to COVID-19
  2. Updates to vaccine policies
  3. Planning and conducting mass vaccination programs
  4. Mitigating the possibility for an outbreak on campus
  5. Responding to an outbreak on campus
