Crisis management COVID-19 at UNIL

The evolution of the coronavirus epidemic is monitored by the University of Lausanne, in conjunction with the cantonal authorities. Here is useful information for all members of the UNIL community.

A team made up of members of our Rectorate and heads of services is responsible for managing the crisis, maintaining institutional continuity and anticipating the conditions for a return to normalcy on the day when it occurs.

It has been active for several weeks now, and its initial operational objectives were to create the system that now makes it possible to provide courses and distance learning on a large scale thanks to the strengthening of IT and teaching support services.

The absolute priority at this stage remains to guarantee the continuation of teaching in the best possible conditions for students, while providing for the modalities of validation of the current semester and allowing for the minimum functioning of a university whose campus is now closed.

The unit set up by the Rectorate meets daily and is currently working on four major projects: teaching, institutional continuity, logistics and campus, and communication.

At its request, all the Faculties and services have drawn up a continuity plan that identifies the services, skills and resources needed to guarantee essential processes relating, in addition to teaching, to the security of goods and persons, the operation of infrastructures, finance and human resources.

Management will keep you regularly informed of the measures that will be taken to deal with the unprecedented situation our institution is going through via this newsletter and the Coronavirus website.
