We are pleased to welcome Jenn Abelson, Investigative Reporter for the Boston Globe as our Keynote speaker.  Jenn was on the team that wrote the three-part series, "Shadow Campus".  In May of 2014 The Boston Globe published a very thorough and in-depth look at the off-campus housing issues that are plaguing the neighborhoods that surround Boston’s colleges and universities.  If you have not yet read this series AND watched the video you need to make a point to do so.
