Talk With Tuminez COVID-19 Student Town Hall



On April 8, 2020, President Astrid S. Tuminez invited students, faculty, and staff to digitally join “Talk with Tuminez” Town Hall meetings. The virtual gathering provided an opportunity for the campus community to ask questions about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Utah Valley University now and in the future. As many questions were addressed as time would allow, and the Student Town Hall meeting has been catalogued by topic and timestamp for easier navigation.
