Fall planning committee

Iowa State University President Wendy Wintersteen recently named an Executive Committee on Fall Planning to develop and implement plans on how best to safely reinstate teaching and research programs on campus, including classroom teaching, academic support, residence halls and dining, health and safety, and research support.

The issues are complex and require the sustained commitment of the entire university community. By asking the critical questions, conducting the proper analysis and leveraging the innovation, skills and creativity of Iowa State’s students, faculty and staff, we can chart a path forward for the 2020-21 academic year.

Guiding principles for this planning are outlined here. This executive committee will work closely with Emergency Operations Center’s Working Groups, which include representatives from the Faculty Senate, Professional and Scientific Council, Student Government, and Graduate and Professional Student Senate.
