Community in Times of Crisis: Perspectives from Anchor Institutions during COVID-19

Sponsoring Organization

AAC&U

Detail

The bold and timely measures taken by colleges and universities to stem the spread of the coronavirus outbreak reflected deep commitments to student well-being and also to serving the communities in which they are situated. As higher education continues to grapple with a new normal, campus engagement with local, national, and global communities will be crucial to determining the path forward. Moderated by AAC&U president, Lynn Pasquerella, this webinar will engage campus and national leaders in a virtual roundtable discussion around what it means to be an anchor institution in challenging times.

The panel will be followed by a post-webinar discussion with higher education experts and leaders of the Rah Rah team exploring the use of technology to enhance, measure, and scale campus community and engagement in order to enable colleges and universities to navigate and ultimately thrive in a period of heightened uncertainty.
