COVID-19 Resource Center: Colleges & Universities

    From an extension of spring break to going online for the remainder of the semester, colleges and universities are moving quickly to address the evolving guidance on reducing the spread of COVID-19 across the U.S. and abroad. To help institutions of higher education quickly access the information they need, we are compiling relevant state and federal guidance and resources issued to date.
