Higher Education in the Age of Covid Update: FOCUS St. Louis


FOCUS St. Louis

Streaming Media




In spring 2020, we sat down with leaders at area universities just as they were transitioning their campuses to virtual operations and making difficult decisions at every turn. Nine months later, we revisited the topic to see how educational institutions are continuing to adapt, evolve and innovate to meet the needs of students, faculty and staff. What lessons have been learned - and what are the implications for higher education and workforce development going forward?


At FOCUS St. Louis, we believe that everyone possesses the power to be a leader and that even the most difficult issues are solvable. Through our experience-based leadership programs and civic issues education, we help people better understand our region and build their capacity for change.
