Implications of Katrina for education

Tuesday, September 13th, 2005

In the aftermath of Katrina, there have been all too many failures evident. It has been encouraging, however, to see the response of the higher education community to those faculty and students who were displaced by the disaster. While much of the effort has been to provide access to traditional brick and mortar facilities, I am also encouraged to see the extension of access to distance education programs to not only those displaced, but to those who are involved in the relief efforts. I know at my institution, UNC Charlotte, we are working to pull together course offerings for exactly that purpose. The sense of community is always stronger after a disaster, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive.
