How COVID-19 Has Impacted Universities Worldwide

The global pandemic first impacted U.S. college campuses toward the end of the last academic year. At the same time, universities in Australia and New Zealand had to shut down just as their new school year was beginning.

The collapse in revenue from international students was devastating. In the UK, where the fall semester is just underway, university officials wonder if reported outbreaks on U.S. college campuses offer a preview of what’s in store for them. EAB’s John Workman and Michael Fischer look beyond US borders and discuss what we’ve learned by watching how political forces and health care systems have shaped responses to the pandemic in different countries.

They also discuss why the early decision made by Canadian institutions to go almost entirely online this fall enabled them to focus their planning and make marked improvement in the virtual experience.
