Leading an institution through COVID-19: Opinion

November 20, 2020
What can leaders of postsecondary institutions do to support their faculty throughout the pandemic? A recent survey by the Chronicle indicates that - in the US context - faculty are tired, anxious, enjoying teaching less, and even considering exiting the academy, writes Katherine Streeter. A panel of postsecondary leaders discuss the challenges COVID-19 poses for faculty and give advice on how leaders can help faculty members thrive. The panelists describe the ways they helped their faculty deal with pandemic stress, such as significantly expanding decision making groups; using methodical, open communication to provide information; and ensuring that institution leadership works with faculty.
