Today, college presidents face an unprecedented challenge as they prepare to reopen campus. As they grapple with new reputational, economic, moral, and legal issues, they must determine how to best address the needs of their campus communities, while also answering to the wider community of constituents.
Join us and our panel of college leaders for a discussion on their plans to reopen responsibly while managing external pressures from parents, local, state, and federal governments. The conversation will explore:
- What are their plans for fall and the future?
- How will they factor in and respond to opinions from outside the campus community?
- What ethical challenges does this pose?
- Ben Allen, Executive Director, Equity Center, University of Virginia
- Collette Pierce Burnette, President, Huston-Tillotson University
- Gregory Washington, President, George Mason University
- Wim Wiewel, President, Lewis & Clark College
