In 2020 the National Center for Education Statistics asked students, for the very first time, if they had enough to eat and a safe place to sleep.

What can we learn from this new information about how to help students, and what should we do now? Watch this webinar where researchers and leaders from diverse institutions of higher education discuss this pressing challenge.
