FORUM | Going Back to Campus?

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020 @ 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm

Lessons from the “re-opening.” Strategies for the future.

What’s it all about? It’s fall. We’re going back to campus, but not in a way anyone could have imagined just a few months ago. As we apply enormous energy to clawing our way out of a COVID hole, the wise among us also are keeping their eyes on the horizon. What does this mean for the institutions we cherish? How will universities and colleges adapt and lead? And, what are the implications for their people functions? We’ve invited a college President and a university CHRO to share how they are approaching the return to the classroom and how they imagine the future. Joining us: Christopher D. Lee is the CHRO of William & Mary (founded in 1693) and Mahesh Daas is the President of the Boston Architectural College (established in 2006). Joe Andrews, a faculty member at the Mt. Washington editions of this conference, moderates this engaging forum.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Discuss the strategic challenges for return to school/work in institutions with multiple stakeholders – students, faculty, the greater workforce, society, alumni, governing bodies, and the government itself.
  • Observe how the BAC, with a core function in spatial design, now faces a future demanding a different kind of workspace, living space, urban design, and environmental integrity. How are they creating this future and aligning their stakeholders to the challenges?
  • Watch how William & Mary, the second oldest college in America, re-purposes the role of a liberal arts education, aligning it with workforce development and the skillsets required for critical thinking and agility – all skill sets that happen to be demanded of HR leaders as well.
