Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, many of the essential support services UAlberta students rely on, from career support to mental health counselling to the sexual assault centre, are no longer physically accessible. So how has the university pivoted to help? In this episode we talk to Dean of Students, André Costopoulos, about how students are coping with change, delivering student services virtually, and what long term impact the health crisis could have on the educational experience.
This episode was recorded on April 20. At the time, there were 2,859 cases of Covid-19 in Alberta.
