The Evolution of Campus: A New Normal for Higher Education
What initially began as a listening exercise has blossomed into a framework for our practice and a driving force for sweeping change across the industry. Through candid conversations with staff, faculty, and students coast-to-coast, we identified a set of vulnerabilities and risks that, while part of higher education for many years, took on greater significance at the onset of COVID-19.
In the first phase of our research, we captured current realities facing institutions nationwide and proposed recommendations to overcome immediate challenges. Moving beyond the short-term, the team expanded its second phase of research to focus on long-term thinking that addresses the vulnerabilities we uncovered and the potential benefits of a new normal for higher education. It’s a continuing research initiative we call Evolution of CampusSM, a narrative we are writing in collaboration with institutions across the country.
I invite you to explore our findings from the second phase effort and partner with us to be a champion for real change in the industry.
