Wily COVID-19 Crisis Response
Supporting Wily Scholars Through this Crisis
If there was ever a moment that struck at the heart of our mission, it was the COVID-19 pandemic. This crisis has demonstrated that Wily Scholars can count on us to serve as their safety net, advocate, champion, and shoulder to cry on. As one student said, we are their “frontline workers”.
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the Wily Network has continued our important work with Wily Scholars. During the peak of the crisis, helping to secure housing, food, and mental health services for Scholars during the pandemic was Wily’s top priority. During that critical period, we were able to ensure that every Scholar had their basic needs met. Clinical coaches met virtually with their students, and Wily provided group programming using a variety of online platforms to keep Scholars connected during this period of social disconnection.
Meeting with Scholars in person continues to be our top priority. We ensure that our in person gatherings follow all public health and university guidelines.
The bottom line is that Wily is here for Scholars, no matter what the upcoming months may bring.
