The Vitality and Power of Higher Education

President to President is a higher education thought leadership series written by university presidents for university presidents. Each year, the series focuses on a different aspect of the higher education experience. The 2021-2022 edition of President to President, titled “The Vitality and Power of Higher Education,” explores how colleges and universities are approaching their missions with new vigor and reexamining their role in the community as the world continues recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Higher education institutions are re-evaluating how they reach students and meet their evolving needs. Education post-pandemic must be resilient, optimistic, curious, entrepreneurial, and imaginative; finding new student markets now can be a win-win for the future. This year’s President to President series examines how higher education is emerging from the pandemic with renewed vitality, a powerful community presence, and a stronger and more personalized student experience for all.

Each chapter of President to President is authored by a notable higher education thought leader at the forefront of innovative philosophies and practices that give their institution a competitive advantage. Frequently published higher education authors Scott D. Miller, Ph.D., and Marylouise Fennell, Ed.D., serve as executive editors for this series. Each month, one chapter will be distributed and promoted electronically, as well as posted on www.president2president.com. At the end of the series, the foreword and chapters will be published into a thought-provoking collection and made available as a reference resource.
