Just as the Institute is highlighting the impact of COVID-19 in conflict-affected countries, it is also critical to reflect on how it is impacting our country, and especially our university communities. Academic leaders discussed the challenges schools are facing ensuring equity and inclusion during the COVID-19 crisis. Panelists considered how schools can respond to continued disruptions over the summer and fall, and offered recommendations for how to better serve all students equally well.
