The Covid-19 pandemic has driven exponential change in many industries on a global scale. Higher education is no exception. Since 2020 the way institutions operate, the way they deliver teaching, conduct research and support students, has transformed faster than at any other time. The changes will have a long-lasting effect on the sector. The 2022 Congress provided an opportunity to reflect on the pandemic through focusing on the impact institutions have on their communities and places; how they drive innovation and entrepreneurship; and consider what the future policies and drivers will be that shape Higher Education in the new norm.
