The desire to reopen colleges, shared across the country, is fraught with risks, writes education consultant, author and former Southern Vermont College President Karen Gross. "For colleges that have decided they are reopening in fall 2020 with in-person classes and residential life, risk management is a task that moves front and center," she notes. The overwhelming risk, in addition to students not enrolling and faculty and staff not appearing due to concerns of risk, is death. Who wants to be the "Reopener" in which there is an on-campus death? "That is not a risk I would take were I a president," writes Gross. "But," she adds, "if the risk is undertaken, risk management must be implemented in full force."
