Pandemic
Diversity
Politics
Funding
Future

Florida Gulf Coast University President, Dr. Mike Martin; and Dr. James Cousins, Provost and VP of Academic Affairs at Kentucky Wesleyan College, reflect on the status of higher education and the challenges they face. Both Dr. Martin and Dr. Cousins are featured in the upcoming WGCU documentary.
