The 16-person committee includes 12 Illinois college presidents with four from public universities, four from private universities and four representing community colleges.
Dr. Quirk-Bailey and the committee will use their leadership and vital insights to create guidance on how to open campuses safely this fall in accordance with Gov Pritzker’s plan to reopen the state (). The guidance of the committee will be disseminated statewide to public and independent postsecondary institutions in Illinois, as well as to students and families who want to know what they could face in the fall.
ICC and other community colleges learned a wealth of knowledge while transitioning to online delivery for the last half of the spring semester, as well as converting in-person instruction to online for the summer. These lessons learned will prove valuable when working to develop a safe and effective re-opening plan
