Should your institution step up to help these students? Do your administrators understand the considerations that must be made to ready your operations? What is the student’s state of mind? Is helping these students your responsibility as a higher ed leader? Get these questions and others answered as you listen to a conversation between Dr. Michael Horwitz, President of TCS Education, Travis Allen, President of Trident University International, and Joe Sallustio, COO of Claremont Lincoln University and host of this broadcast.
