Webinar | Higher Education in 2023 and Beyond: Grand Strategies for Post-Pandemic Grand Challenges

In 2019, EDUCAUSE described ways in which digital transformation can provide a “grand strategy” to help institutions address higher education’s “grand challenges,” which are some of the most consequential and widespread concerns facing higher education. Now we present a new set of grand challenges and introduce a second “grand strategy” that complements digital transformation. Update your strategic arsenal with insights and advice from EDUCAUSE. Participants will have a clear understanding of digital transformation and institutional resilience; will learn ways to translate institutional priorities into technology initiatives; and will develop perspectives on higher education’s major challenges.


  • Better understand digital transformation and institutional resilience
  • Learn ways to translate institutional priorities into IT initiatives
  • Develop perspectives on higher education’s major challenges

Inclusion and Accessibility

EDUCAUSE strives to hold meetings, conferences, and other professional events where all attendees feel welcome and barriers of any type do not exclude people from attending or participating. EDUCAUSE recognizes that long-term and lasting progress on this front will require time, sustained effort, and the cumulative impact of incremental and individual actions.

EDUCAUSE automatically provides real-time AI captioning and downloadable transcripts for all online events. Many online events utilize breakout rooms to enable small group interaction and learning and AI captioning is not available in breakout rooms at this time.
