Hosted by Dr. Monica Flippin Wynn, over 7,000 faculty, staff, and administrators from over 700 institutions, non-profits, and higher education organizations joined us for the transformative conversations series about higher educations responses to COVID-19, to the social unrest, and changing higher education environment.

This series explores how Higher Education is both impacted by and responding to these challenges. The series focuses on college teaching, learning, student success, and all aspects of higher education. We include frank conversations about equity, social justice, and the current climate in higher education. Through this forum, we will engage with colleagues across the country to dissect issues in higher education in real-time.
