Covid-19 - What Still Lies Ahead for Universities

As we enter the third year of the Covid-19 pandemic, colleges are reflecting on how well they have adapted to the virus and considering their plans for the future. Those with the biggest challenges — large universities — must be particularly alert. What could still be on the horizon?

Health and administrative officials from large universities will join The Chronicle to share their perspectives in the upcoming virtual forum, “Covid-19 - What Still Lies Ahead for Universities.”

  • How are universities navigating shifting quarantine requirements, tight student housing, and testing protocols?
  • How has Covid-19 influenced how they will prepare for future health emergencies, including the emergence of new variants and other potential pandemics?
  • What role does location play in university leaders’ outlooks?
