Everything has changed. We are now living in a society that is struggling under the weight of a collective trauma. COVID-19 touched everyone and everything in the world. This fall, the higher education community is expected to return to “normal.” Yet, for those of us who work in this field, we know that we are a long way from normal. Leading in this type of environment will require a new set of skills that demand intellectual, physical, and emotional nimbleness that we have never been asked to display. In this session, Michael J. Sorrell will discuss our collective new reality and how to become the type of leader that our students and schools need now.
