For college students returning to campus this fall, everything will look and feel widely different. Some aren’t returning to campus at all and will take classes online, while others are navigating how to safely manage a mix of in-person and online learning. And not all students are returning to their colleges, as some put their learning on hold to navigate life and family responsibilities during the pandemic.

The coronavirus has heightened inequities within higher education, disrupted campus life, and put a financial strain on many families. As the fall semester gets started, we want to hear directly from students.

Chalkbeat Tennessee and The Education Trust in Tennessee are bringing together college students to share their thoughts at this uncertain moment – building off a dialogue we had with students in May. Please RSVP, so we know you’re coming and are able to provide you with login information for the webinar.

Delece Smith-Barrow of The Hechinger Report will moderate. Special thanks to our additional media partner, The Tennessean.

Chalkbeat Tennessee is a nonprofit news organization committed to covering one of the state’s most important stories: the effort to improve schools for all children, especially those who have historically lacked access to a quality education.

The Education Trust in Tennessee advocates for equitable education for historically-underserved students across the state. We believe in centering the voices of Tennessee students and families as we work alongside them for the future they deserve.
