Canada’s Community of Scholars and Teachers of Public Administration and Policy
… back to Competencies
Identifying community leaders
The COVID pandemic and its aftermath will drive changes to Canadian social and economic policy and will increase the calls for reform and streamlining of our institutions. There will be greater demands for policy and administrative expertise and more demands for rigour and cost-effectiveness in teaching. Responding adequately to these challenges needs community leadership.
[See Alex Usher’s 5 May 2020 review of government responses to universities in the UK, US, and Australia in https://myemail.constantcontact.com/One-Thought-to-Start-Your-Day–Comparative-Bailouts.html, and his other blogs on how the Coronavirus could affect Canadian universities at http://higheredstrategy.com/blog/.]
