Updated June 20, 2021

Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, the International Center started conducting town halls, open forum meetings, and department debriefs  on an ongoing basis. A list of events held since mid-May 2020 are indicated below. Where feasible, PDF copies of the forum session presentations are posted. Forum session presentations may be edited lightly for typographical and minor errors prior to being posted.

Some open forum sessions may be recorded, but recordings will be shared with meeting attendees directly instead of being posted publicly.

Please note that information presented in an open forum or information session on any given date can become outdated very quickly as new and sudden developments can take place with little advance notice. Always consult with an International Center advisor for the most recent guidance.
