About this Series

The U.S. Department of Education produced a 3-part series to aid educators in implementing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for the safe reopening of K-12 schools and institutes of higher education. 


About this Document (Volume 3)

President Biden is committed to seeking and providing the necessary resources to support the safe operation of institutions of higher education (IHEs) and addressing the ongoing impacts resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic on higher education students, adult education students, faculty, and staff. 

The Biden-Harris Administration strongly believes that increasing capacity for safe in-person learning as soon as possible is essential for students seeking to learn in such a setting. Further, the Administration recognizes the unique challenges faced by IHEs, students, faculty, and staff during these unprecedented times and strives to provide resources and other supports to overcome these challenges. This includes the historic funding provided to IHEs under the American Rescue Plan (ARP).

In Volume 3 of this Handbook, a series to support the safe reopening and operation of K-12 schools and IHEs, the Department will address several priority areas of interest to the higher education community with an eye towards both a response and a recovery that leaves our Nation’s students and IHEs stronger than before the COVID-19 pandemic began.
