Just days after the president of Agnes Scott College tested positive for COVID-19, the women’s liberal arts college joins a growing list of higher education institutions across Georgia that will only offer online classes this fall due to coronavirus concerns.

“I would say in the last three weeks, the numbers in Georgia and surrounding states have been terrible, and they are not getting better, says Christine Cozzens, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college.

On Wednesday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Cozzens talks with host Rose Scott about what students can expect when classes resume Aug. 20.

Cozzens also discusses the variety of resources and support services that the college is providing to help students and faculty transition smoothly to an all-remote learning environment.
