UNICA Rectors Seminar “Leading universities in times of crisis and change”, 1 July 2022

The European Higher Education landscape has undergone extraordinary transformations and faced several global challenges in the past few years. The Rectors Seminar will provide the academic leaders of UNICA member universities with an opportunity to reflect and discuss on the strategies that Higher Education Institutions are putting in place to adapt themselves to an ever-changing landscape and be able to shape and deliver the university education of the future.
Through three panel discussions, the Seminar aims at providing insights and sharing experiences on how UNICA member universities are responding to the challenges that European Higher Education is currently facing:

  • Session 1: “Focus on Ukraine. Crisis management, science diplomacy, academic values”
  • Session 2: “Managing post-COVID change and adapting Higher Education for the future”
  • Session 3: “Building Back Sustainably”

A separate agenda for the administrative General Assembly will be available in due course
