  • University Pandemic Response Team

    To inform the leadership teams of the university, the Saint Francis University Pandemic Response Team was formed to bring together representative members of our community.  Members of this committee, Don Miles and Mandy Lasinsky, coordinate with local public health officials.  The Team is charged with continuously reviewing the guidance from federal, state and local authorities, as well as the conditions on campus, in the local community, state and nation.  The Team serves as an advisory board to the university’s leadership team on issues related to, but not limited to, the resumption and suspension of face-to-face instruction and residential living.  The Team will review the response plan weekly in relation to the latest virus developments, the latest guidance from all agencies and the conditions on campus.
