Abstract

With the outbreak of the Coronavirus, crisis leadership has been, and continues to be, a driving force for decision making, budgeting, and forecasting strategic next steps in higher education. This presentation addresses crisis leadership specifically in higher education within the confines of the Coronavirus and is delivered in three specific focus areas. Starting with shared governance, this presentation addresses the American Association of Professors (AAUP) recommendations for active shared governance working to anticipate the needs of the higher education institution constituency, while engaging in immediate and consistent leadership amidst the pandemic. Transitioning to the next focused area of this presentation, crisis management and leadership are reviewed through defining their unique elements and characteristics. Third, this presentation drills down to a micro level example and specifically considers remote leadership in response to emergency remote teaching. Overall, this presentation serves to highlight the dialogue regarding crisis leadership in higher education and the ongoing emergency preparedness and leadership constructs defining governance during this pandemic
