COVID-19 Planning Team – Incident Command Advisory (ICA)

The Incident Command Advisory (ICA), which has shepherded our immediate response to the pandemic, as well as long-range forecasting and return planning, has expanded its membership to include nearly two-dozen cross-functional leaders at our University. The scope of its work, also, has evolved. In particular, ICA has adopted eight critically important workstreams in areas that span academics, communication, facilities, and health and wellness, among others. Each workstream has a corresponding working group, and these working groups and the expanded ICA will comprise the pandemic preparedness task force that is supporting our sSpring semester planning.
