Jed Shivers named COVID-19 point person

Incoming President Andy Armacost has named Jed Shivers, Vice President for Finance & Operations, as the COVID-19 point person, effective May 18. He will replace Tom DiLorenzo, Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs, who will retire June 1.

UND has a pandemic emergency response plan, and University leaders meet regularly to ensure campus is prepared to address the challenges of COVID-19. We also are working closely with local, state and national agencies, and following CDC recommendations.

The COVID-19 point person is responsible for monitoring and leading UND’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Vice President Shivers oversees operations at UND, including the University Police Department, Safety Office, and facilities. He will continue to work closely with Associate Vice President for Public Safety and Chief of Police Eric Plummer, who is also UND’s emergency management incident commander.

After May 18, please submit all COVID-19 planning matters to Vice President Shivers.
