Looking ahead to programming this fall, there is a lot of uncertainty about what will or won't be able to happen on campuses. You may have started to think how to approach your traditional welcome week programs and events in this new landscape of social distancing. While every institution is going to be in a different spot given their state, local, and campus guidelines, we have worked with campus professionals to develop a resource in ENCORE (our digital library) that may assist you in thinking through the important questions, considerations, options and alternatives for your upcoming fall programming.
Thinking Ahead: Considerations for Fall Programming resource is divided into three parts:
- In-Person Programming with Social Distancing and/or Attendance Restrictions and Going Virtual
- Working with Student Leaders and Student Organizations' Activities and Events
- Fall Programming Alternatives and Options
While this resource is not intended to be exhaustive, we hope it will enhance the conversations and planning at your institution and provide ideas for continued conversations with your colleagues across NACA. The
NACA Connect communities are a great place to continue the conversation on how your colleagues are approaching various fall programs and events. There are already a number of threads discussing how institutions are approaching fall programming.
We are also hosting two upcoming
Coffee & Conversations sessions related to this topic:
We encourage you to leverage the NACA network and engage in this dialogue as we continue to learn and grow together during this challenging time.
