Jeffrey R. Young, EdSurge Podcast
Marjorie Blen had nearly finished her associate’s degree at the City College of San Francisco when the pandemic hit. Suddenly, classes moved to an unfamiliar online format, and her life became full of logistical hardships and financial ones.
In this podcast, Blen talks about her own activism to help other students continue their studies. She is joined by Mordecai I. Brownlee of St. Philip’s College in San Antonio, Texas, who offers insight on what colleges can do to support students during these unprecedented times.
