Penn State To Host Faculty & Staff Town Hall September 23

Penn State will host a virtual town hall event at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 23 to provide updates on the coronavirus pandemic to faculty and staff, the university announced last week.

During the hour-long event led by President Eric Barron, faculty and staff can ask questions regarding the university’s return to campus and its ongoing response to the virus.

Barron will be joined by a number of administrators, including Provost Nick Jones, College of Medicine Dean Dr. Kevin Black, Vice President for Human Resources Lorraine Goffe, and Director of Coronavirus Operations Control Center Kelly Wolgast.

Faculty and staff can anonymously submit their questions through an online form. The event will be livestreamed and later archived for repeat viewings.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to pose specific questions to their supervisors, as panelists will simply address questions broadly.

This is the first town hall event Penn State is hosting during the fall semester. Previously, the university hosted townhalls pertaining to the coronavirus and the return to campus on June 22 and July 30.

To date, Penn State has reported 1,371 University Park coronavirus cases on its COVID-19 Dashboard.
