College leaders weigh in about online learning - EMILY DERUY, Bay Area News Group

The leaders of the UC, CSU and California community college systems spoke about the challenges of educating students during the coronavirus pandemic. During a broad conversation hosted by the Public Policy Institute of California, the leaders of the state’s three public higher education systems — UC, CSU and the community college system — urged students and their families on Friday to recognize that sweeping changes at colleges and universities will not just last a few weeks or months, but potentially years. “This is not a grin-and-bear-it for two or three months, this is a couple-year, three-year issue,” said CSU Chancellor Timothy White, who in 2019 announced plans to retire later this year.
