MHEC Safe Return to Campus Readiness Survey

The Midwestern Higher Education Compact has a long history of helping its member states and the institutions in those states by developing group procurement contracts that save states and institutions time and money while facilitating the acquisition of technology and insurance.  Recently, MHEC has received a number of inquiries requesting assistance in the purchase of supplies that will help allow for the safe return to campus of students, faculty, and staff.  Your thoughts on the following survey will help us prioritize and focus our efforts and we welcome your subject-matter expertise and advice.
