Fredonia Panel Sets Discussion
Insight into how decisions made by the administration of President Joe Biden may play out in higher education will be offered by three State University at Fredonia faculty members in a virtual panel discussion held on Tuesday, March 2, at 2 p.m. The panelists — Department of Biology associate professor Courtney Wigdahl-Perry, Department of Sociocultural and Justice Sciences assistant professor Jessica Finkeldey and College of Education Lecturer Gregory Geer — will discuss, from their own perspectives, how Fredonia students, faculty and staff are likely to be impacted by decisions made by the new administration.
