Higher Education in the Age of Coronavirus

The current pandemic has created a culture of uncertainty for all sectors – particularly education. In this session, we’ll gather leaders from higher education institutions across the region to discuss the challenges and opportunities they’re facing, from transitioning to an online learning environment to budget implications to preparing for next year’s incoming classes. What does enrollment, equity, and experience look like moving forward? How are institutional leaders dealing with infrastructure, faculty and finances?

We’ll explore how area colleges and universities are working to keep faculty, staff and students safe – now and in the future – while also carrying out their vital role in our community.
