Did you know that Gustavus has a COVID-19 Student Advisory Board? Comprising a diverse cross-section of students who represent various groups and involvements, the board meets each week to provide student perspective and ideas on the ongoing COVID response efforts on campus.
Students on the advisory board are expected to become knowledgeable about Minnesota Department of Health guidance influencing college decisions and current Gustavus COVID response measures. The group shares ideas and concerns in a solution-oriented way to help keep students living and learning on campus. Gustavus COVID-19 Student Advisory Board members include:
