Covid-19 has upended higher ed, but has it truly changed everything? With vaccines being rolled out, colleges look ahead to a potentially more normal-looking fall semester.

In this virtual forum, a Chronicle assistant managing editor, Ian Wilhelm, joins the futurist Bryan Alexander and a panel of higher-ed thinkers for a wide-ranging discussion to examine the challenges and realities that may lie ahead and to look broadly at how the academic enterprise — teaching, research, service — will change due to the pandemic.

Questions will include:
  • How will student expectations, remote operations, evolving technology, and institutional finances affect the coming months?
  • What has truly changed, and what adjustments will prove only temporary?

Let us know what issues you want the panel to discuss. Submit your questions in advance to the host at [email protected], using the subject line “Future.”
