Title: "Once This Is Over...": Leveraging a Pandemic Mindset For Organizational Change
Lead Presenter: Anna O'Reilly
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm
Room: Jr. Ballroom C, DECC
Abstract: 2020 saw higher education racing to adapt to a global pandemic and a renewed commitment to dismantling systemic racism. Overuse of the word 'unprecedented' reflects the extraordinary work needed to address this changing landscape. While this period generated serious critical reflection of long-established norms, motivations for these solutions were purely external - institutions had no choice but to adapt. This critical examination of our work and the willingness to try new interventions to better serve our students has always been important, but it took the 'pandemic mindset' to demonstrate its necessity. The presenters will discuss the challenges and successes of applying this mindset to advising at various institutions, as well as concrete ways to utilize this approach in your own work going forward.
