"Town and gown" is the relationship between universities and the communities they call home.  That relationship is changing in the age of coronavirus, and tensions running high, as some institutions have brought students back to campus. We speak with the leaders of Tufts, Somerville and Medford about how they are working together during this pandemic.

We hear from Anthony Monaco, president of Tufts University, Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone and Medford Mayor Breanna Lungo-Koehn.
