Stepping Up and Helping Out
Elizabeth Redden, Inside Higher Ed
How can we help?
That simple question is spurring a flurry of activity among students, faculty, staff and university administrators who have looked for ways to assist health-care workers in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether it’s repurposing university-owned equipment to decontaminate N95 masks, mixing hand sanitizer in chemistry labs for use by hospitals, collecting supplies of personal protective equipment, or babysitting health-care workers’ children, professionals in higher education and the students they serve are finding all kinds of ways to help.
