Millions of school-aged children are at home. Universities and school districts are moving to online education in the U.S. What about in the rest of the world? Join us as we delve into the different ways the education systems around the world are responding to the pandemic, and working to ensure our students stay on track.

We are living through a time of fear and uncertainty. While we struggle to understand the ripple effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy faculty and guest experts have come together to provide weekly seminars to try and help us understand where we might be headed as a global community. Each week we'll address a different sector impacted by the novel coronavirus.
