After International Programs’ decision to pause the 2023 faculty-led Jordan summer program, Life and Arts Editor Tanya Yarian discusses her reporting on the story. The 2022 program the year prior experienced an outbreak of COVID-19, which factored into the decision to pause the program for this year.
“We had a really difficult time this year and we needed to slow down and make sure that we were better prepared for a post-pandemic operation of the program on both sides,” said Ron Cox, interim dean of International Programs.
