The Big Universities Students Need Now

Chronicle of Higher Education Panel

Date: Time: 1:00 pm
Online via Zoom
Contact: Crystal Garcia
Don’t miss this panel featuring Crystal Garcia, assistant professor in the Department of Educational Administration!

Details:
Large research universities must figure out how to move forward in a time of upheaval. As they weigh how to promote equity and inclusion, define “hybrid,” and protect public health, many are facing labor shortages, faculty and staff burnout, and — especially on public campuses — political pressure on multiple fronts. What can and should the student experience look like now?

In the final session of a four-part series “Going Forward: The Higher Ed We Need Now,” will examine how universities committed to equity can best serve all students.

Join the co-hosts Michael J. Sorrell, president of Paul Quinn College, and Scott Carlson, senior writer at The Chronicle, as they bring together faculty, administrator, and student perspectives to discuss:

What elements of “normal” are still possible and desirable, and how does the student experience need to change?
How can institutions measure progress toward equity and inclusion?
Where do campus leaders find their inspiration and ideas?
What forms of communication allow for broad-based input and sound decision making?

Hosts:
Scott Carlson, senior writer, The Chronicle
Michael J. Sorrell, president, Paul Quinn College
