Dear ILEA Presidents & Leadership Teams,

We hope you are well and able to focus your energies on the health and well-being of your communities, as public life slows considerably. In this quickly evolving situation with COVID-19, we write to you again with updates about our programming.

At this time we will be holding the publication of institutional Equity Plans until a future date. We want to honor the significant efforts involved in the development of these plans over the last year and thus generate commensurate attention when they are released publicly. We will engage with your teams as a new plan for release develops.

Additionally, we will postpone the Awards & Special Announcements webinar scheduled for March 31 at 10AM until a more appropriate time. We look forward to a celebratory event when the timing is right.

The PCC will be responding to this public health situation with information and recommendations for students, colleges and universities, philanthropy, advocacy partners, and elected officials. We will be working closely with your teams as this work develops.

During these troubling and uncertain times, your partnership is more important to us than ever. Please remain virtually connected and consider us a resource to call upon. You all remain close in our thoughts.

Warm regards,
The Partnership Team
