Crisis Management Part I: Anticipation and Preparation
Not all problems are crises, but higher education is a crisis-prone business. Developing thoughtful approaches to crisis anticipation and preparation is imperative for boards and presidents governing today—COVID-19 is a prime example. Risks, foreshadows of crises, are often ignored or underestimated. Social media accelerates the growth of problems into crises. Crises metastasize as partisan and ideological interests add fuel to the flames. Changing markets and demographics result in unavoidable, and severe, crises for many institutions. Come to this session to learn how your governing body can develop an advanced level of sensitivity and readiness for what may come.
