Podcast: Stanford's president: college in the COVID age


On the GZERO World podcast, Stanford University president Marc Tessier-Lavigne joins Ian Bremmer to talk about how higher education is trying (and in many cases failing) to adjust to the pandemic this fall. Tessier-Lavigne made news in August by reversing a June decision to welcome undergraduates back to campus, determining that California's summer COVID outbreak made it untenable to bring most students back. How Tessier-Lavigne came to that decision, how Stanford intends to enforce COVID restrictions once all students do return, and what the future of higher education will look like in a post-pandemic world – all in this discussion .
