Consider taking 53,000 students across six campuses around metro Atlanta from in-person to online classes in two weeks while maintaining the quality of education. Add to the equation the need to ensure the safety of students, faculty, staff and community at the largest university in the state.

Watch Georgia State University President Mark Becker, whose background could not be more appropriate. Dr. Becker’s academic training is as a biostatistician. At the University of Minnesota he even served as assistant vice president of public health preparedness and emergency response. President Becker will discuss his insights on leading during the most chaotic period Atlanta has experienced since 1864 and how he is enabling Georgia State to continue its mission in times of a global pandemic.
