Session Type: Invited Speaker Session


The COVID-19 pandemic has re-shaped higher education campus environments and climates across the globe. In some places this adaptation has meant governance challenges and decision-fatigue in higher education, and in other places, a shift in focus to community-based strengths and identifying new possibilities. This session features research on the multiple effects of the pandemic and considers innovative pathways to bring research to bear in creating new visions and systemic evidence-based changes in higher education that center on intersectional racial equity in particular.
