Special Event – Navigating a Polarized Climate in Higher Education and Networking Reception (In Person Only)

Macalester College - Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center 130 S Macalester St, St. Paul

Join us for a rich discussion exploring the role of higher education leadership in an intensely  polarized cultural, political and social landscape. Recent protests and unrest on college campuses across the U.S. have surfaced questions and discourse about the appropriate role and responsibility of higher education leaders and their institutions during times of political and social unrest. Balancing various constituents’ beliefs and demands, ensuring safety on campus, and ensuring economic stability are sometimes competing priorities which introduce myriad challenges for leaders in this role. With our guest moderator Kerri Miller of MPR, we will hear from a panel of higher education leaders in Minnesota about how they navigate these challenges and their insights about the sector’s role in complex and ever-changing times.
