COVID-19 Resources for Higher Education

Advising Leaders

brightspot is on a mission to make higher education more engaging, equitable, and impactful. Recent months have made this mission even more challenging – and even more important – as we confront a global public health crisis that has changed how we live, learn, and work. The health, safety, and success of families, friends, clients, collaborators, students, faculty, and staff are all under threat.

As we continue to move our projects forward while ensuring the health and safety of our team, we want to do what we can to help higher education weather the storm and maybe even find ways to emerge from this crisis stronger than before – with people better connected to information, opportunities, and each other.

We’ve compiled a list of our thinking as well as predictions, assessments, and other articles we’ve found helpful in planning for the future and navigating the present. Please get in touch if you have questions, have a suggested resource, or would like our help.

As courses move online, so must student support services like counseling, tutoring, career advising, and research support. So, we are offering a free webinar on Wednesday, May 6 at 2pm EST to help colleges and universities understand their students, categorize and communicate services, and learn tools to help processes and people adapt.
