[Virtual] Sustaining Higher Education: Understanding the Economic Impact & How to Support

Friday, December 04, 2020
9:00 AM – 10:00 AM

At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, higher education institutions were forced to take quick measures to protect students and faculty, while at the same time preserving what remained of the school year. As they continue to operate in the midst of the pandemic, colleges and universities are planning for a new normal and a need for agility during uncertain times — yet, with the associated health risks, financial risks and budget cuts, and a decline in the use of on-campus services, institutions across the nation are seeing steep declines in enrollment and revenue.

With nearly 100 colleges and universities in Greater Philadelphia, higher education has a major impact on our regional economy as both a talent pipeline for regional employers and as major employers in their own right. Join us for a conversation with leaders from local universities and financial institutions to explore ways our business community will be impacted and ways that this critical industry will need to pivot their operational models for success.
