Higher education has been responding in crisis mode since spring and racing toward an entirely new kind of academic year this fall. How can we turn this experience into productive new strategies for planning and leadership?
Existing siloed decision making would not have allowed for a successful response to the rapidly changing conditions brought on by the pandemic. The integrative process of short-term planning effectively brought together academic, financial, and physical planning, and presents a unique opportunity to continue work across traditional planning silos and modes of learning and living.
The challenge is to balance the risk from many, smaller short-term decisions to the institution’s missions and future goals, with a constructive trigger for change to produce new creative windows and outcomes with thoughtful planning.
