Atlantic universities are a “go-to location” for students due to their COVID-19 readiness: Russell

August 11, 2021
Universities in Atlantic Canada are leaders in COVID-19 readiness, writes St Thomas University President Dawn Russell in an article for New Canadian Media. Russell argues that the Atlantic’s successful limitation of the spread of COVID-19 combined with its top-tier postsecondary institutions has made the Atlantic a go-to location for both domestic and international postsecondary students. “Atlantic Canadian universities are in a position to safely welcome students to our campuses, where they can enjoy a sense of normal university life and where the surrounding communities can be confident that we are respecting their well-being,” writes Russell.
