Dr. Johnston will address the long-term changes we’re likely to see in higher education as a result of our current crisis. A shift back to in-person education is beginning to—and is likely to—shape student activism and organizing. He will also talk about organizing that is emerging this semester at CUNY, and what it may portend for the future.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Johnston

My path to academia took me through both undergraduate student organizing and campus media, and I’ve long believed that students had legitimate interests in participating democratically in the governance of colleges and universities.
