Continuity of Education Work Group

Ten TXST COVID-19 work groups were established to create a plan, evaluating and revising the plan, as necessary, that protects the safety and wellbeing of Bobcats as they return to live, learn, and work on TXST campuses for summer II and fall and now spring. These work groups are comprised of more than 150 faculty, staff, and students representing a broad range of departments, expertise, professions, and voices.
