President Lee Pelton and Berklee President Roger Brown, both leaving their posts in higher education this spring, joined hosts Jim Braude and Margery Eagan this week to discuss enduring the pandemic this past year at their respective schools, lessons learned, and next steps in their careers and lives.
Regarding what higher education must take away from the pandemic, Pelton said:
This is a crisis. The Greek word, the etymology of crisis in ancient Greek is to change, and so this is the time for change. It’s a challenge but also an opportunity. If we miss the opportunity, then we will not have done our jobs very well.
