To the University of Miami Community:

The University of Miami has taken proactive measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and our broader community.

To engage our University community in a candid and productive conversation about our comprehensive response to the global pandemic, we will hold a series of virtual town hall meetings.


The virtual town hall meetings will be recorded and archived for later viewing for any individuals who are not able to access the live events.
