Watch a webcast recording where our experts connect with the broader higher education community to share ideas and ask questions amid the COVID-19 crisis.


In the last few weeks, every aspect of higher education—from educational delivery to research to student support—has changed profoundly. Leaders have had to make difficult decisions with incomplete information in hand and against a backdrop of fear and confusion, knowing that their decisions will drastically alter both campus operations and the experiences of the many students, faculty, and staff they serve.

Watch this webcast recording where our experts and your peers discuss the nuances of how to effectively lead through a crisis. Our panelists shared honest and authentic perspectives on how to:

  • Maintain a steady hand when you’re faced with extreme uncertainty, doubt, and constant fires
  • Make decisions without complete information
  • Negotiate the competing interests of different stakeholders
  • Balance your fiduciary responsibility with the very real health concerns facing students, faculty, and staff
  • Sustain your energy through long days filled with stress, anxiety, and confusion

Who should attend?

This webcast has been primarily designed for mid- and senior-level leaders, including both academic and staff leaders. Deans, VPs/AVPs, Provosts, and Directors from both the academic and staff sides are encouraged to attend.
