Colleges and universities are facing extraordinary new challenges as the pandemic continues to unfold and questions of sustainability and new paths forward remain unclear. How are higher education leaders navigating this period of crisis and disruption? How have the lessons learned informed long-term planning and the calls for meaningful education in an increasingly virtual environment?

The first in a series of roundtable conversations brings together a distinguished panel of higher ed leaders and sector experts for a look at how institutions are tackling these and other critical issues as they move from crisis to recovery.

Hosted by Marcum LLP partners Karen Schuler, Mary Antonetti and Lyn Chamberlin, a strategic reputation management expert for higher education and non-profit organizations, this interactive webinar will cover topics including:

  • Paths forward for institutional leadership amidst continual paradigm shifts.
  • Approaches to uncertainty and the exigencies of the unknown.
  • The critical role of transparency and reassurance in developing trust and ongoing community support.
