The hosts dive into the complicated issues facing international students who are hoping to return to campus this fall and why many may not be able to return at all. Our guest, David Winston of the Winston Group, lays out the data around public attitudes toward international students and how leaders can make the case for the positive contributions they make to the U.S. economy and on our campuses.
Here are some of the links and references from this week’s show:
