Fireside Chat with Ignacio Sanchez Diaz

In the height of the pandemic, universities across the world made huge efforts to handle the emergency in the most appropriate and effective manner, while at the time caring for their community members – students, faculty and staff. 

It gave us all time to reflect on what was truly important and reimagine the future, where universities could focus on valuing people above other things.  

Now, in a ‘post-pandemic’ world, we discuss how universities have responded to the challenges posed by COVID-19. Did they heed the warnings? How have they adapted? And what progress still needs to be made?


In this session, participants will hear perspectives about how universities have adapted in a ‘post-pandemic’ world to make positive progress towards a more humane society.

Designed for

This event is designed for university leaders interested in the future of education and the reimagined university in a post-pandemic world.
