Campus Reopening

Fall 2020: The VFC is asking university workers and students to contribute information about campus reopening policies that are hidden from view, focusing on violent and violating policies. Add your institution to our database, moderated by Dawn Kaczmar.

Student Responses

The VFC is using student newspaper to track responses to campus reopening, remote learning, and social distancing. We are using maps and timelines that draw on student newspapers to tell stories about what's happening and how students feel about it.

Campus advocates have asked us to help them track how universities are providing support for students and staff who are caregivers. We're collecting information through an online survey and developing resources to make this information visible.
