Katrina and Education

Hurricane Katrina has moved educators around the nation to create initiatives to assist displaced college students affected by the devastation. One initiative was developed within a week by R. Schroeder and associates at the University of Illinois Springfield. The Sloan foundation is funding a national offering of online courses that are to begin October 10, 2005. Students from the 26 universities affected by the hurricane may attend online offerings. For more information: http://sloansemester.org/
Spread the word so students may benefit from this wonderful educational opportunity during a time of hardship. Miracles do happen!
