WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - On Tuesday, Purdue President Mitch Daniels announced the establishment of a Safe Campus Task Force.
"With the viral epidemic still at an early stage in the U.S., uncertainty confronts us on almost every question. But one thing we can say with confidence: next fall’s college environment and experience will be unlike any we have witnessed," Daniels said announcing the task force.
"I have asked a broad-based team of the best minds and experienced leaders at Purdue, led by two of our senior academic figures, to propose every change they can conceive in our practices, procedures, physical facilities, or any of our operations that will limit the degree of illness, flu or otherwise, on our campus, and to manage it effectively when inevitably it does occur. The way we teach, learn, house, perform research, congregate, and do the work necessary to support those core activities are all open to reexamination and new, safer approaches."
