  • COVID-19 Conversations

    These live online meetings offer a valuable space for members to hold real-time discussions and share resources about how to navigate the impact of COVID-19 on higher education. The topics have ranged from recovery without insurance and budget preparation to coping with a virtual work world and reopening the campus. Each meeting is recorded and is made available in the URMIA Library, along with an edited chat log and other resources. Notes about the discussion are posted in a thread on the URMIAnetwork, where the conversation continues.

    As these just-in-time meetings develop, they are listed in the Events Calendar. Upcoming COVID-19 Conversations are visible to URMIA members who are logged in to the website.

    Hundreds of members representing a broad spectrum of institutions have participated already in one or more of our COVID-19 Conversations. As one participant put it, "Keep sharing with URMIA peers. URMIA is our own little community of trust."
