Chair’s Corner

Stacey Baisden
As you know, the majority of us have been working remotely over the last few months due to the pandemic. For the past month, units across campus have been creating a plan to safely return to campus this fall. I wanted to share that I have been invited to attend weekly Protect Purdue meetings with other leaders across campus.

I am drawing attention to the Protect Purdue Plan in this month’s Chair’s Corner because I want to ensure everyone in our management and professional areas are aware of the important work we are doing. If you have any questions regarding the Protect Purdue Plan, please do not hesitate to email me and I can share your questions with the others on the committee.

Taken from the Protect Purdue Plan website:

The Protect Purdue Plan is our comprehensive strategy to keep our campus and community safe by limiting the spread of COVID-19. It is driven by science and the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Indiana State Department of Health and other scientific organizations.

Led by the Protect Purdue Implementation Team, which works in tandem with our external Medical Advisory Committee and a talented team of Purdue subject matter experts, and with the oversight of the Purdue Board of Trustees, the plan outlines the policies, procedures, guidelines and tactics needed for the successful resumption of campus activities this fall.

Each part of this plan is aimed at offering the safest experience we can to protect all members of our Purdue community, especially the most vulnerable to the serious consequences of COVID-19. These are the small steps and major moves we’re all taking to protect ourselves, protect others and protect our Purdue community.

I am appreciative to be a part of the Protect Purdue Plan and am grateful to be a part of this important committee during this unusual time in our lives.
