    A Remarkably Uncommon Leadership Journey: Dr. Elsa Nunez President, Eastern Connecticut State University

    A Remarkably Uncommon Leadership Journey: Dr. Elsa Nunez President, Eastern Connecticut State University

    Join us for a conversation with a remarkably uncommon and inspiring leader, Dr. Elsa Nunez. As president of Eastern Connecticut State University since 2006, Dr. Nunez’s career path is clearly informed by her personal experience and humble beginnings, growing up in Puerto Rico and then immigrating to Newark NJ where she attended school. Her struggles as a non-English speaking elementary school student set the stage for a career in higher education that has resulted in significantly improved access and success for underserved students. As president, Dr. Nunez’s commitment to access is evidenced by gains in the representation of minority faculty and improved retention and graduation rates for underrepresented students at Eastern. And the Dual Degree Enrollment program that she established early in her presidency has received national attention for its success in closing the achievement gap.

    Lessons Learned from Teaching Through COVID with Dr. Jennifer Stratton and Dr. Tom Menella

    Lessons Learned from Teaching Through COVID with Dr. Jennifer Stratton and Dr. Tom Menella

    The sudden and unprecedented shuttering of our college campuses due to the COVID-19 pandemic forced educators to face the most jarring and rapid change of perhaps any profession in history. Within a moment’s notice, faculty were asked to leave their classrooms indefinitely and, in many cases, to recreate a learning environment that is 100 percent virtual.  As challenging as that dictate was, it represents possibly the best-case scenario in what’s proven to be an incredibly inequitable landscape during the pandemic. Whereas some colleges are conducting online learning in what’s been described as a fairly seamless transition, many others are struggling simply to connect with students to ensure that their basic needs—including sufficient food—are being met. Just as college and university responses during the pandemic have varied widely, so too have been the experiences of our faculty.
    In this week’s episode of IngenioUs U, we have the opportunity to hear from two seasoned faculty members about their experiences teaching through COVID and how this experience has changed their approach for the better.  They also have some valuable insights about how our institutions need to rethink our support for faculty, especially given that faculty are the one consistent thread that connects our students to our institutions, now more than ever.

    Imagining the University of the Future with Dr. David J. Staley

    Imagining the University of the Future with Dr. David J. Staley

    In his role as history professor and director of the humanities institute at The Ohio State University where he also leads the forum on the university, historian and futurist Dr. David J. Staley spends a good deal of time thinking about the future of higher education. His latest book, Alternative Universities, Speculative Design for Innovation in Higher Education, (Johns Hopkins Press, 2019) has taken the higher ed world by storm. And for good reason. Staley is one of a handful of individuals who in 2018 forecast the current global pandemic and his insights about the future have largely been on target. When it comes to higher ed, Staley suggests that the notion of innovation has become somewhat of a cliché and our discussions about higher ed innovation are rarely expansive or imaginative enough. He believes that the future belongs to those institutions that possess the vision and the courage to step out from the crowd and pursue a strategically-differentiated mission.  During our conversation, he shares some valuable insights for how to do just that.  Join us for this inspiring and compelling conversation with historian, faculty member, futurist and strategy consultant with Dutcher LLC, David Staley.  See here for more background information.
