COVID-19 & Your Consortium: An Open Dialogue

Facilitated by Charlie Barlow, Associated Colleges of the Midwest

Tuesday, March 17 at 4:00 - 5:30pm Eastern

This webinar is available exclusively to ACL Members. 


Are you wondering about the ways your consortium can support member institutions during this unprecedented emergency? Would you benefit from listening to the ways others are responding?

The ACL Virtual Professional Development Committee is hosting a dialogue focused on:

(a) the impact of coronavirus on the activities of your consortium, and

(b) the role – or potential new roles – that a consortium can/should play.

We are setting aside up to 90 minutes for this meeting, intended as an informal exchange of information. With facilitation from Charlie Barlow (Associated Colleges of the Midwest), topics may include:

  1. Consortial events and meetings
  2. Technologies
  3. Communication
  4. Faculty development and support
  5. Financial impacts and mitigation strategies
  6. Emergency management
  7. Quarantine space sharing
  8. Transportation 

Please share any suggested topics for discussion by taking this quick poll or by emailing Charlie at

As many of us are juggling competing priorities, we fully understand that attendees many need to drop off before the end of the session. We will follow up with a recording and some notes from the meeting.

Please note that this webinar is available exclusively to ACL members - you must login to your ACL membership account to register. Email for assistance.
