EPISODE 204: Kurtinitis tells us what remote campus life entails for many local students and teachers at CCBC

    As the pandemic continues into its third month of lockdown here in the Charm City and with a huge June 2nd mail-in election on the horizon, we are stepping up our game at Baltimore Positive with daily conversations that we hope you subscribe to and hear and share with friends. It is a very important time for our hometown and our future. Please register to vote and participate in our democracy!

    We will be hearing from many of the prime candidates in the Democratic race for Mayor of Baltimore over the next two weeks as election ballots arrive in the mail. And as graduations and the Preakness are on hold here and spring arrives, we will be asking many educational and university leaders about the impact of COVID-19 and the future of higher education in America.

    You will not be disappointed by these lengthy, informative chats.

    Dr. Sandra Kurtinitis is an old friend of Don Mohler. She runs the largest community college program in the state. Nestor Aparicio is a graduate of CCBC. He still calls it Dundalk Community College. We have 60,000 displaced students in Baltimore County. Perhaps you or a loved one are one of them?

    Kurtinitis had a lot on her mind and a wealth of information.

    Clearly, a lot has changed and it’s happening very quickly – and crisis management has become the key role for all us during the pandemic.

    The next two weeks at Baltimore Positive will feature mayoral candidates and education and university leaders intertwined.

    Don and Nestor have been extremely active the past two weeks having meaty conversations with some exceptional and aspirational people.

    We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

    We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders throughout this pandemic at Baltimore Positive. And we expect to do it at a rapid pace so stick with us and subscribe!

    Like all others, we have halted a “live schedule” and will continue to launch our chats as we have them during this crisis. Expect more than less.

    Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

    We were built for this…
