Back to school 2020
The LSC's mission is to support a thriving, diverse community, and we're working on plans to bring people together in different ways over the next few months. The university is moving to gradually increase on campus activity. But we know that everybody is facing their own unique set of challenges, and we can't make assumptions about the kinds of activities and interactions our community members want.

We appreciate you taking a few minutes to fill out this survey to help us understand where you are--in terms of geography, life situation, and your comfort coming to campus. We know things are uncertain and conditions may change, so just answer as best you can given what you know now. We welcome as much or as little as you are willing to share. It is helpful if we know who you are, but anonymous responses are also welcome.
