Responsible Decision Making During a Crisis

Responding to Covid-19 requires making educational, legal, and ethical decisions in a rapidly changing environment. In an unprecedented time for college leaders, how are they approaching the heavy decisions before them and their teams?

Join Lindsay Ellis, a Chronicle’s senior reporter and panel of college leaders as they discuss what pros and cons decision makers are weighing, who should be brought in to the decision making process, and how to balance obligations that leaders have to their students, employees and communities.

Panelists include:

  • Reginald DesRoches, Provost, Rice University
  • Margee Ensign, President, Dickinson College
  • DeRionne P. Pollard, President, Montgomery College
  • Keith E. Whitfield, Provost, Wayne State University
