Students vs. Pandemics (SvP) was founded at Harvard University in March 2020 in response to the growing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are excited to further our mission in overcoming real-world challenges that have arisen as we move beyond COVID-19. We are an interdisciplinary group of graduate and undergraduate students with chapters established at several universities, all working together remotely. We hope you'll join us!
Our organization strives to build community and empower students to make a positive impact on health and overall wellness during times of crisis with the three primary goals of improving transparency and communication, building community, and identifying needs and innovating solutions.
Students vs. Pandemics encompasses all of these terms and more. We want to emphasize the need to address the many aspects of society that the pandemic has affected, and continues to affect, even as we move beyond COVID-19.
