On April 29th, The Stevens Initiative held the first in a series of virtual events in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on higher education titled, "Coronavirus Response Training 1: Introduction to Virtual Exchange and the Importance of Partnerships".

"The first training session will provide an introduction to virtual exchange and explore how virtual exchange might help those who conduct education or exchange programs adapt to the coronavirus crisis. Presenters will discuss common features of virtual exchange programs and how these programs help young people around the world learn and work together. The session will also focus on the central importance of building and maintaining strong international partnerships. A significant portion of the session time will be reserved for participant questions and discussion."
