As influenza activity throughout the United States continues its gradual rise, H1N1 in particular has been the risk-management topic of the season for most colleges and universities. Among the questions being asked: Can one continue operations in the event of a campus closure? What if a faculty member is too sick to teach? What if students refuse to come to class for fear of flu exposure? While swine flu may not become the pandemic it initially was projected to be, many institutions are leveraging technology--including systems already in place--to keep campus operations going in the event of a flu closure or other emergency. The author discusses how institutions prepare for a potential pandemic and presents tips in managing the pandemic risk. (Contains 7 online resources.)
