International educators are planning for a return to student mobility – yet our community recognizes that this return will be a new “normal”. The COVID-19 pandemic will profoundly shape how institutions send students abroad and welcome new cohorts of international students. Institutions must grapple with CDC guidance, state and local mandates, and the emerging discussions on vaccine passports/certificates. Join a panel of medical professionals and international education experts for their insights on maneuvering the constantly evolving pandemic as we ensure the continued health and safety of students and institutions.
