In this issue:

  • Connecticut Public Radio to host Provost Lejuez
  • COVID-19 Testing

Connecticut Public Radio

Where We Live, NPR Connecticut Public Radio show hosted by Lucy Nalpathanchil, will have UConn Provost Carl Lejuez on her show tomorrow morning at 9:00 am. She is providing another opportunity to have faculty questions answered directly by the Provost. Although faculty had an opportunity last week at the President’s Faculty Town Hall, each new week brings more questions of the reopening for the leadership at UConn.  If you have a question, please call or text producer Tess Terrible directly at 603-660-6117.

Testing at UConn

COVID-19 PCR testing will take place starting tomorrow at the Brown Building parking lot for all faculty and staff who have registered in advance. Testing is not mandatory, but all faculty who have been approved for returning to work this fall semester are urged to take the test in order to fulfill their civic responsibility in not spreading the virus.

Mary Ellen Junda, President

Jeffrey Ogbar, Executive Vice President

Michael Bailey, Executive Director
