One Year Later: King’s Academy COVID-19 Symposium 

Following up on last year’s COVID-19 Symposium, King’s Academy is again bringing national and regional experts together in discussion with King’s faculty and students. In student-led interviews, members of our global community examine the complex and vexing questions fostered by our new knowledge of the virus, one year later. Experts, industry leaders, teachers and broader community members discuss the latest information about the virus from different perspectives: from the scientific to the artistic, from the psychological and interpersonal to the economical. With this initiative, King’s continues our standard for service and leadership by providing a timely, interdisciplinary forum that allows our students and the rest of the world to better understand the many dimensions of a continuing global crisis.
