COVID: The Traumatic Challenge to the Mission and Psyche of the University

When: June 10, 2021, 1:45 pm - Thursday

Where: Swang 108

Session 4

Session Abstract

While the nation is just beginning to understand the lasting impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that it will be yet another disruptive force in higher education and will challenge the sustainability and mission of Christian institutions. Education has changed dramatically over the last 14 months in response to the pandemic and will likely never return to what was once considered “normal.” During this dialogue, this group of presidents, representing a range of colleges and universities, will wrestle with the substantial challenges and potential solutions for our future.
