As the pandemic surged in the spring of 2020, college students saw their lives disrupted by COVID-19’s sudden emergence. Their classes moved to Zoom, study abroad programs were canceled, and many summer internships fell through.

If you are interested, please contact Margaret Lynch before February 28 and briefly explain why you would like to join the Group.
