As UW-Madison Campus Empties, Some Students Grapple With Food, Housing Insecurity
Yvonne Kim, The Cap Times
Sara Goldrick-Rab has long been on the front lines of advocating for low-income and food-insecure college students. But even for an expert like her, this past week has been uncharted terrain.
When the former University of Wisconsin-Madison professor first heard that Harvard University was asking students to move out on March 10, the COVID-19 pandemic quickly took on a new form.
Within hours, Goldrick-Rab, who now teaches higher education and sociology at Temple University and directs The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice, wrote and published a guide for colleges on how to support students during the crisis.
