“Long after the dust from the COVID-19 disruption has settled,” write S Abu Turab Rizvi and Peter Eckel, “higher education institutions will be remembered for how they helped bring this crisis under control and supported broader communities through the upheavals caused by it.” To win the fight against COVID-19, the authors state that higher education institutions need to lead efforts that go beyond campus borders, including supporting new and continuing community needs. YWCA Brandon executive director Heather Symbalisty explains that women’s shelters are sometimes overlooked when it comes to donations and expressed her appreciation of Brandon University’s recent donation of medical supplies to the local YWCA.  Inside Higher Ed | Brandon Sun (International, MB)
