The COVID-19 pandemic required governments, businesses, higher education institutions, schools, communities, nonprofits, and individuals to make rapid shifts in navigating nearly all aspects of daily life. Two years later and our communities and institutions are still facing the daily effects of the pandemic. All CUMU members have had to make challenging decisions to slow the spread of the virus and keep their communities healthy. While our world is still grappling with the negative effects of the pandemic, we have also seen CUMU members display great strength, creativity, and responsibility for their students, staff, and communities. Institutions played critical roles in ensuring the health and well-being of communities, both locally and globally, through their public health research efforts and on the ground support of their engaged missions. CUMU members continue to find ways to creatively navigate in the face of the pandemic, innovating delivery of education for students, creating safety nets to meet basic needs in their communities, and adapting the ways they engage and support their campus communities, cities, and metropolitan areas.
