Campus Compact for NH is continuing to support our member institutions, VISTAs, and other grants under our purview as we all transition into a Post-COVID world. We are beyond proud of the work being done across NH campuses to continue to support student success and access amid this challenging time. Campuses have risen to the challenge of supporting their communities and overall mission of coming together to fight this pandemic. Please feel free to contact us with questions, concerns, or ideas! Take a look at the COVID General Information sheet to get started!

Supporting low-income students

As we find campuses looking very different for the foreseeable future, low-income students will need extra support to ensure they can continue to be successful. These students may face prolonged need in post COVID life including food insecurity, housing need, connectivity, and more.  It is important to advocate for the resources these students will need.

Here is a resource for those in need of Internet.

Bias and discrimination

Unfortunately, this public health emergency has brought out bias, discrimination, and hate in some, including racists attacks against Asian people. It’s important to proactively remind ourselves and others around us not to project fears of the virus onto marginalized groups or spread unfounded associations. People of Chinese heritage or those who look East Asian are not genetically predisposed to carry or spread the disease. It’s important to pay attention to what is happening on your campus to be able to respond quickly to any attacks or statements that may impact whether all students are welcome on your campus. There are a number of resources on responding to incidents of hate on campus, including this one from the Chronicle of Higher Education. These incidents also offer an opportunity to engage students in dialogue about racism and xenophobia. NH Listens and other areas where safe spaces to talk about issues like this may be a good option to talk with students.
