February 27 – Teaching at the Tap Room: After the Apocalypse – Recovery and Reconstruction Post Maria in Puerto Rico at Institutions of Higher Education

Hurricane María was an equal opportunity ravager for both public and private institutions of higher education throughout Puerto Rico. How most of them bounced back, and how many were changed, is a story worth telling. The session will also include a discussion of the roles played by mainland institutions that sought to assist students and institutions affected by the hurricane, and a reflection on lessons learned to address future natural disasters, both on the ground and from a distance.

Featuring Margarita Benítez, Executive Director, Puerto Rico Endowment for the Humanities
