The summer of Covid-19 featured Facilities employees working harder than ever to reconfigure, reschedule and rethink almost every aspect of campus operations to prepare for the return of students. EH&S led the response efforts by ordering and distributing the necessary PPE to keep our work environment safe.  Each department adapted to the evolving challenges that arose due to the pandemic.

In mid-March, campus was closed due to the covid-19 pandemic and the majority of employees began to work remotely.  Staying focused from home, staff continued to work on strategic planning for the Institute, collaborated with students, and pushed forward on construction projects. Employees also received heaps of praise and appreciation for being on the front lines during a time of crisis, keeping vital campus operations up and running.

Construction projects such as the Campus Center and the EcoCommons moved forward and The Kendeda Building's "Ops" team settled in. New employees joined Facilities Management and we all celebrated the holiday season with a Thanksgiving potluck and a festive holiday party.
