As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, universities are working hard to keep their communities informed about the continually changing situation. Our participants from last year’s COVID-19 Communications Panel return to discuss their experiences and the impact on how we communicate with our audiences.

How have the communications challenges we encounter evolved over the past year? What tools and strategies have we developed? What lessons have we learned?

Attend our panel discussion to hear communications leaders from across the country discuss these topics and more.
