Institutional Resilience: Preparing for the Future of Your Research Enterprise
During times of uncertainty and challenge, critical up-to-date information about your research enterprise and competitive landscape can help your institution emerge stronger after a crisis.
Ensuring a Viable Post-Pandemic Future for Scholarship in the Humanities
In this session we discuss strategies for campus leaders to recognize, sustain, and support scholarly excellence in the humanities and many social sciences. We look at peer comparisons that can provide context for critical post-pandemic decisions about resources and priorities. We demonstrate that humanities units’ strengths may often be undervalued, and that a fuller appreciation of these strengths can provide a more thoughtful basis for critical conversations among department heads, deans, and provosts.
Institutional Resilience- Continuing the Conversation
Universities are uniquely positioned and qualified to respond to a worldwide crisis. The panel will discuss these vital topics:
– How is the pandemic continuing to affect universities, faculty, and the research enterprise?
– How can we best avoid the short-termism that threatens to corrupt our planning and strategic priorities?
– How can universities sustain and deepen key partnerships during these times, such as with national labs?
– How can we best position our campuses to capitalize on the opportunities for interdisciplinary scholarship this moment presents?
– What proactive approaches are academic leaders taking now?
