Higher Ed Pandemic Resource Center

If any departments at your institution need help planning for the continuing disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kuali Team wants to help by sharing a free tool (seriously, no strings attached; no fine print). Kuali has created a simplified continuity planning form, using best practices from Kuali Ready (higher ed continuity planning suite), designed to focus on needs arising specifically from this situation. This tool may be helpful as it will:

  • Guide departmental users through a series of questions, including questions specific to research and instruction continuity planning.

  • Output all of the information in a readable document that can be shared.

Please know that there is no contract, obligation or expectation to buy or later use our Kuali Ready continuity planning software. None. Kuali created this tool as a small way to help provide immediate relief to our customers during a challenging time. Any data you add to the tool is yours, even if you decide to stop using the form. If you would like to take advantage of this tool, simply click here to learn more and get the process started.
