VSCS Board of Trustees executive committee discusses the Omicron variant

The Vermont State Colleges System (VSCS) Board of Trustees executive committee discussed the Omicron variant during their latest meeting. Chair Lynn Dickinson asked VSCS Chancellor Sophie Zdatny to provide an update on how the state colleges system would be handling the incoming spring semester across the campuses of the system.  Zdatny said the VSCS has a good relationship with the Vermont Department of Health and with other higher education institutions in Vermont to ensure they are aligned and working together, which has been beneficial. Zdatny said investing in academic supports for students and retention will be huge, saying there will be great needs for students coming up academically and on the mental health front, as well.
