UConn President Thomas Katsouleas

Colleges and universities around Connecticut are wrestling with what the country is wrestling with: how and when to get back to business amid a global pandemic.

We depend on your support. Donate to Connecticut Public today.

UConn President Tom Katsouleas talked about that with our “All Things Considered” host John Henry Smith. He discussed how the university is preparing for the start of fall classes, the future of fall sports, how UConn is being affected financially, the university’s own research efforts into coronavirus and more.

The following contains the original interview that aired on April 29, 2020, as well as bonus material not included on the original radio broadcast.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. He's proud to be a part of the team that won a regional Emmy Award for The Vote: A Connecticut Conversation. In his 21st year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
