Emergency Decision-Making: a Social Impact Tool for Higher Education
With the emergence of the global COVID-19 pandemic, higher education institutions are stepping up to the challenge of pivoting their business models to play their role. Now, more than ever, institutional leaders are called upon to make immediate and profound decisions with far-reaching consequences – and with the potential to accelerate and scale their social impact ripple into their communities and beyond.
To help with this unique decision-making opportunity, the McConnell Foundation adapted its Strategic Planning Guidelines for Integrating Social Infrastructure into University and College Strategic Plans as a “strategic thinking” tool. Social impact institutions are encouraged to use this distilled set of insights to inform the strategic decisions they are called upon to make during the COVID crisis.
