University Pandemic Academic Advisory Committee

The University Pandemic Academic Advisory Committee (UPAAC) is a cross-divisional academic leadership group that works collaboratively with the president and provost, lending critical faculty perspectives to urgent discussions about how to safely and effectively pursue the university’s educational, research, and clinical missions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The committee supplements the ongoing work of faculty in the JHU 2020 Planning workgroups, ensuring that all divisions’ unique faculty needs and concerns are considered.

Members convene regularly to provide input on academic activities, associated budgetary impacts, and guidance documents being prepared for the university community, and they help educate their peers on key decisions as they are made.
