Community colleges’ role in helping Afghans, Community College Daily, 8/26/21

As with many of you, I’m sure, we are doing all we can to support Afghans coming to the U.S. and those who can’t leave their country. It is a heartbreaking situation.

Over the years, I’ve worked closely with many Afghans. Because of my work with community colleges, I published this piece recently.
