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?

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
