FL1 DAILY: HWS responds to reports detailing issues around COVID transparency around campus (podcast)

Last week FingerLakes1.com reported on the stories of those at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, who felt that administrators fell short in protecting them during the pandemic. After a relatively quiet first semester in the fall- a number of issues bubbled to the surface in the first two months of 2021.

On Thursday, Robb Flowers, VP for Campus Life at HWS joined Ted Baker on Finger Lakes Morning News to talk about issues raised in the story. With permission from Finger Lakes News Radio, we have published this interview between Baker and Flowers as part of our FL1 Daily podcast series.

Editor’s Note: Before publishing the original story we reached out to HWS Communications for comment on the issues at play. In addition, we provided HWS with any opportunity they desired to respond- whether it be written, spoken, or otherwise. We did not hear back from them about fulfilling that request after the story was published.
