Our faculty, staff, students, and alumni are leading the charge on public policy responses to the COVID-19 crisis.
Our population, our health care and economic systems, our workforce, housing, and security will all be affected in ways that are yet to be fully seen. The pandemic has laid bare our world’s racism, economic injustice, and other social and structural inequalities: the virus touches all, but the most significant and direct impacts have been and will continue to be on vulnerable people and communities.
Since mid-March 2020, our community has pulled together to find solutions.
Whether it is ensuring that our most vulnerable residents have their basic needs met, assessing the damage to our economy, gathering insights about health preparedness and responses on the ground from Michigan to Mozambique, addressing national security concerns, or providing critical information to residents and small businesses so they can stay afloat, Ford School faculty, students, and alumni are engaged and committed.
