Fall 2020 Campus Planning

This spring, groups from departments and offices across Chatham worked together to provide planning for the eventual reopening of campus. This section details their efforts.

The Planning Process

In April 2020, Chatham convened 13 working groups to plan for how the campus could safely operate in the summer and fall. 

The working groups worked assiduously throughout the spring, providing weekly updates at regularly scheduled President’s Council (PC, the Vice Presidents and Dean of Students) and Cabinet (PC, Deans, and other senior administrators) meetings. Throughout the planning process, PC and Cabinet members have consulted with outside groups and resources in healthcare and public health, including evidence-based, recommended best practices from Pennsylvania’s Department of Health, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Chatham’s healthcare provider, UPMC, Allegheny Health Network, and other healthcare organizations in the region.

This work culminated in Chatham’s planning document. The document addresses four elements of planning for the return to in-person operations, including how to:

  • repopulate the campus;
  • monitor health conditions to detect infection;
  • contain and prevent the spread of the disease when detected; and
  • shut down in the event it becomes necessary.
