Preparing for the Post-Pandemic World

(or, what to do when VUCA Strikes!)

Well, that didn’t go as planned. Let’s face it, 2020 was one of the most volatile years in world history. We now find ourselves digging out from the impact of the global pandemic and thinking, “What next?” To be honest, volatility is not new to higher education. In fact, a measure of volatility is commonplace in the higher education environment. Just over a year ago, the sector was obsessively focused on the enrollment cliff, the higher education business model, and free speech. We’ve added to this list a worldwide pandemic, calls for social and racial justice, cancel culture, and waves of natural disasters.

Ways to Connect With SCUP Peers During COVID

We are a community where planning comes together, and I know that our professional work and connections create relationships that transcend the plan. We have heard many of you are leading crisis management activities on campuses. Then there are the thousands of you supporting the institutions, having tough conversations in an effort to partner on what’s next. It’s remarkable to see how a crisis activates the best of humanity and reminds us of the power of the SCUP community. Crisis brings questions and the need to connect with a supportive community. We have two tools at your disposal to connect with SCUP members.

Planning for: Allergen-Free Dining

Nearly half of all college students today avoid at least one food allergen, according to a report listed in our Spring 2020 issue of Trends in Higher Education. As the number of students with disclosed food allergies continues to rise, allergen-free dining has become a key consideration in creating a healthy and inclusive campus—as well as in recruitment and retention efforts. Recently, Michigan State University opened an allergen-free dining hall on its campus called Thrive. We caught up with Gina Keilen, Registered Dietitian, Culinary Services, at Michigan State to learn more about the planning process and how her team’s efforts are positively impacting the campus community.

Planning for: Effective Data Analytics

Interview with Colleen Carmean, former associate vice chancellor for academic innovation, University of Washington-Tacoma, about effectively using data to improve teaching, learning and business operations.
Abstract: In the Spring 2020 SCUP Trends report, most colleges and universities excel at collecting data, but struggle when it comes to effectively using that data to improve teaching and learning or business operations. According to the article, the key to success is a robust cross-institutional strategy that engages multiple stakeholders.

But what does that look like in practice? We reached out to Colleen Carmean, former associate vice chancellor for academic innovation, University of Washington-Tacoma, for her insights.
