North Atlantic Symposium: Lessons From the Fall

November 12-13, 2020
Virtual Symposium | 1:00-3:45 PM Eastern

Access session recordings on the program page.

Higher education, along with our everyday lives, has been completely disrupted by COVID-19. Colleges and universities across our North Atlantic region first responded, then planned, and now are learning about what is working and what is not.

Join us to explore key areas of institutional life that have been profoundly impacted and operations that have been recast.

Four sessions over two days will focus on academic planning, student life, fiscal health, and operations/capital planning. How are these areas working together in new ways? What were your plans for the fall, how have they worked, or need adjustments going forward? Out of this great crisis, what are some of the unexpected outcomes that will innovate higher education going forward? What new ways are your institutions working together across disciplines/departments toward your common institutional mission?

You’ll gain perspectives from different types and sizes of institutions across the region. Panels will be moderated by experts in specific fields. At the end of each day, we will all reflect and comment on the topics discussed.
