The list is endless: Quarantined residence halls, budget reductions, hiring freezes, enrollment uncertainties, mental health crisis, international student access, and revising of admission requirements, time to degree interruptions, tenure delays, and calls for racial justice on and beyond campus. These are some of the most pressing issues academic and student affairs leaders face, all set against a backdrop of institutions facing an existential crisis. In this first session, we hear from current academic leaders about how they are addressing these issues, while advancing equity. We consider how ASHE members can study, write, and advocate for equitable change.
