President Glotzbach joins WAMC's "Roundtable"
Skidmore College President Philip A. Glotzbach participated in a live radio program on Northeast Public Radio WAMC to talk about issues facing colleges and universities, including new challenges associated with COVID-19.
Glotzbach joined WAMC’s Alan Chartock and host Joe Donahue, investigative journalist Rosemary Armao and corporate attorney Rich Honen on “The Roundtable” on Thursday, March 26.
The panelists discussed a wide range of current topics, including recent decisions by Skidmore and other colleges and universities to move to remote learning for the remainder of the spring semester as part of nationwide efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19.
"The first question is about health and safety and that is what we were concerned about more than anything else," said Glotzbach, who participated by telephone.
The president also spoke about other issues facing higher education, including economic challenges and broader trends in admissions.
Glotzbach, a philosopher and spokesperson on issues of higher education, has served as Skidmore’s president since 2003.
