Managing Campuses During the Coronavirus Outbreak

With college campuses shutting down across the country, FutureU hosts Jeff Selingo and Michael B. Horn explore what happened at Tulane University in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Scott Cowen, who led Tulane University at that time,  discusses how the Katrina experience influenced campus leaders everywhere, Cowen said.

"Everyone began to look at risk management much more broadly than they every had before, thinking if there was a hurricane, what would we do? If there was a shooter what would we do? If there was a bomb in a building what would we do...? However, I doubt anyone had on their risk matrix a pandemic."
