COVID-19, HBCUs, the Humanities and Lessons Learned

November 3 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Florida Memorial University will host two panel discussions exploring the impact of COVID-19 in South Florida. This first panel will focus on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), with FMU used as a case study of how HBCUs experienced COVID-19. Panelists will discuss the process and results of a campus-wide survey that sought to find answers related to: 1) Vaccine Hesitancy and 2) The HBCU experience during the pandemic.

Panelists will also explore how FMU reacted to the pandemic, how local communities responded, the collaboration that grew out of this dire situation, and what can be learned from the experiences over the last two years.

This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant in partnership with Florida Memorial University.
