COVID-19 Resources for the Arts & Sciences Community

To help in this time of crisis, the Society has pulled together resources from higher education associations, science coalitions, and cultural advocacy groups for our chapter institutions and members.

Please note: We will post opportunities here at key moments to contact legislators on behalf of higher education, the arts, humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and mathematics.

It is easy to feel helpless in the midst of the pandemic. But together, we can guide the national response and build more resilient communities through the power of the arts and sciences.
