Major conferences, sporting events, community-wide programming, alumni engagement campaigns. These are the institutional events for higher education that have ground to a halt as the pandemic continues. With nearly 3,000 public and private colleges and universities in the US alone serving almost 20,000,000 students and an even greater number of alumni, this has massive economic and social implications for the US.
This session will examine the road forward for academic events: how they are shifting in a time of campus uncertainty, how they will manage the engagement of their communities and what shifts in learning will alter campus events forever.
- Establish the current baseline of campus events as fall semesters approach
- Show how engagement is shifting for university communities
- Gain insight into timeframes for the return of traditional events
- Mark where permanent shift may occur for university events
