Although the UW-NU partnership team had continued implementing its seventh agreement with NU through the COVID-19 pandemic, both sides of the partnership team were appreciative of the opportunities that vaccine rollouts and loosening travel restrictions allowed to meet and reconnect in-person. In November 2021, a delegation from NU, came to UW to connect with different campus partners. And in May 2022, Professor David McDonald (Faculty UW-NU Partnership Director), Professors Susan Yackee and James Sweet, and the IPO team, were able to also visit NU to discuss the development of an eighth agreement and reconnect with various colleagues and teams across the institution.
