The UNC System Office has been monitoring the situation with COVID-19 closely and has provided the UNC CAUSE Planning Committee with guidance regarding campus activities, events, and conferences. Our campuses and communities have changed rapidly over the past few weeks as we seek to understand the impact and implications of the COVID-19 virus in the short and long term.
At this time, the committee is continuing plans for 2020 UNC CAUSE for this fall. The committee anticipates opening up the call for proposals in mid-May and early-bird registration by June 1. In the event that 2020 UNC CAUSE must be canceled this fall, full refunds will be issued.
For Special Interest Groups that traditionally host in-person meetings during the Spring semester, it is currently advised to transition these sessions to remote solutions until such time as the UNC System can resume normal gathering rules.
As a reminder, UNC CAUSE offers support to SIG as defined in our SIG Event Guide. For SIGS who have questions or support requests in light of these modified meeting circumstances, please contact the UNC CAUSE SIG Chair via email at email@example.com.
