Student Feedback on the Pandemic-Induced Switch to Online Instruction, Part 1: Areas for Improvement
There has been much written in recent months about the impact of COVID-19 on higher education. The fiscal consequences of lost dollars from unrealized income (event income including athletics, rental income, spirit wear sales, food, etc.) and refunds (campus housing, parking, fees) starting have been substantial. Coupled with anticipated enrollment losses for fall and, in the case of public institutions, reductions in state support, they may be severe enough that some colleges and universities may not survive—a result that will change the landscape of higher education in the US. Final tallies for individual losses will not be known until solid income projections are available for 2020–21 and the actions of the federal government are complete.
