Lumina Foundation study: COVID’s Lessons for Global Higher Education

04 December 2020

Lumina Foundation published a study entitled “COVID’s Lessons for Global Higher Education: Coping with the Present while Building a More Equitable Future”.

The study offers a preliminary assessment of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on higher education throughout the world, with a special focus on racial justice and equity. While it is too early to form a clear picture of the multiple effects and consequences of this ongoing health and economic emergency, it is possible to analyse the main challenges it presents and to see the range of responses from nations, institutions, and individuals.

The study seeks to evaluate, in particular, the special hardships encountered by students from underrepresented groups and the effectiveness of policies and measures put in place to protect and support them at both the national and institutional level.
