The students I've talked to are realistic about the challenges facing them. They have been well-informed and grounded. And yet, they've maintained their enthusiasm. What has surprised me is that their enthusiasm has improved my outlook, something not easy to do during these dark days.”

Steven Reich (MPP '85), who received his degree during the Reagan recession, talks to students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
