Leaders of change:
building a sustainable future for universities

3 November 2020

We are living through uncertain times and universities around the world are transitioning through a period of radical change and adjustment. The return to campus and uncertainty over the next academic year will present university leaders with an imperative to realign their priorities and rebuild a sustainable university model that can thrive in the next era of challenges.

During this one-day virtual summit we will seek to challenge the current model for university leadership and explore:

  • Adaptive leadership during a crisis
  • The triumphs and pitfalls of a technology-driven research, teaching and learning environment
  • Diversity and the need to champion an equal and inclusive campus
  • Strategies for designing an efficient funding model
  • The evolving role of reputation in a post-truth world
