Keeping the Future in Focus During Crisis
COVID-19 quickly shifted the focus of higher education leaders from planning for the next five years to addressing the next five days. With questions circling about how to re-open and welcome students back to campuses in the fall, many leaders may struggle to keep in mind how
the landscape of their institution will look beyond the crisis.
Dr. Scott Cowen, President Emeritus of Tulane University and AGB Institute for Leadership & Governance faculty member, urges administrators and faculty to “get on the balcony” and evaluate the future from a big-picture standpoint.
Dr. Cowen’s article “Out on the Balcony: Thinking Beyond the Crisis” appears in Inside Higher Ed.
