Disaster Response:

In the week following the Boston Marathon bombing, Boston area colleges and universities faced unexpected challenges that impacted the day-to-day operations of their living and learning environments. From Boston University’s improvisational online open house, to an Emerson College student-led fundraising campaign, to Emmanuel College’s discovery of student expectations in times of crisis, this panel will explore three unique responses to an unprecedented crisis in the city of Boston.
