Planning underway, amidst COVID-19 changes
Posted by Morgan White on March 16, 2020
Shantanu and I have held a few planning meetings with Marc and Kasey from the YMCA for Dump & Run. We’ve talked with F&S communicators and the staff who will be clearing out of the space we intend to use. Shantanu has put together a draft communications plan, and he identified an improved collection container which we can purchase with the Student Sustainability Committee funds. We also began planning for a community drop off location that would not be at the F&S building.
On Friday, Bryan Johnson arranged a quick phone call with Shantanu, Bryan, me, and Joe Glass at Housing. We discussed the changes in campus and the anticipated student behavior, related to living in the residence halls. We talked about the potential for several students leaving at random dates throughout the remainder of the semester, and how we could potentially still collect materials. We also talked about the possibility of needing to cancel entirely for this year. Ultimately, that decision will need more clarity about who is here in May. Because we will not know which students choose to come back to campus after spring break until at least March 23, we are going to have a follow up discussion on 3/25.
In the meantime, I am cancelling the meeting we had scheduled for tomorrow. Our next group meeting will be on April 14 at 1pm, and it will be a Skype call.
