This is a Virtual Event.

Please join us for this panel discussion about the profound effects of COVID-19 on the state of education in Michigan. Research from the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Wayne State University has looked at shifts in enrollment numbers, the variety of modalities of instruction, and qualitative effects on students and families. Eighteen months into the pandemic, what measurable effects have we seen, what are the long-term implications, and what lessons can be learned from this unique set of challenges?
