TAMUC President Mark Rudin

Special Programming from 88.9 KETR: Texas A&M University-Commerce president Dr. Mark Rudin, Dean of Students Dr. Thomas Newsom, and Student Health Services Director Maxine Mendoza-Welch joined KETR's Jerrod Knight on the air Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. to answer call-in and submitted questions regarding the university's actions to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus and how those actions are impacting students and the campus community. 

As KETR reported last week, A&M-Commerce chose to fully transition away from face-to-face instruction and toward online-only course delivery for the Spring 2020 semester as the COVID-19 pandemic led to closures, delays, and cancellations across the United States.
