Session Description:
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the functions of higher education cannot be underestimated, but neither should it be overestimated.  Our challenge in 2021-22 is moving in multiple directions simultaneously as the virus variants surge, vaccines reduce danger, and politics sets much of the tone while we find solutions. We are in a continuous and inconsistent transition state.  It is the job of Academic Affairs to make sure higher education continues the core function of educating students.  Faculty are central to this mission; thus, we must consider how we manage the future cadre of faculty.
