COVID-19: Mitigating Risk and Liability for a Fall Reopening

Academic Impressions Virtual Workshop | August 5, 2020

If you’re a higher ed leader preparing to reopen campus in the fall, you are likely concerned with what the liability implications could be for your institution. What happens if a student gets sick—can the institution be held responsible? What happens if an employee of the institution does not follow COVID-19 protocols? How can you set proper expectations with students, parents, faculty and staff about what they can expect for the fall 2020 semester?

In this virtual training, Higher Education Chair Nancy Conrad and other presenters will offer practical steps that can be used to help mitigate risk and promote compliance with safety procedures. In addition to Nancy, the presenters include:

  • Arthur L. Caplan, Ph.D., Drs. William F. and Virginia Connolly Mitty Professor of Bioethics, NYU Grossman School of Medicine; and
  • Karen Robinson, Senior Advisor at the Equity Research and Innovation Center at the Yale School of Medicine.

After the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with the presenters and will leave with a checklist of steps you can take right away.
