Unprecedented times call for unprecedented innovation. Historically, however, institutions of higher education have encountered difficulty in navigating major changes. While the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted longstanding roadblocks around which institutions have detoured, it has also forced universities to finally forge a path through them.
While they continue to perfect short-term solutions, leaders must also turn their attention to how higher education can continue to progress. A pioneer in the push to align college missions with their business models, rpk’s Rick Staisloff is focused on necessary adjustments in this new scenario. (Things will not continue as before, and perhaps they shouldn’t.)
Institutions must re-examine everything from administrative structures to their use of classroom space. A daunting prospect, yes, but the Post-Pandemic College Report from the Chronicle of Higher Education provides a road map for moving forward in the COVID-19 world.
Combining expertise from Rick Staisloff and authorities from across higher ed—Bryan Alexander, Flower Darby, Karin Fischer, Anthony Abraham Jack, Cornell B. LeSane II, and Karen A. Stout—this report details what needs to be done and offers insights on how it can be accomplished.
“Higher education is no longer simply being asked to change. Change will be forced on it, and not just from the impact of Covid-19.”
