Post-Pandemic Research Visioning Working Group

Research in the post-pandemic university can and should change in light of the new opportunities and deep concerns that have arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic. This Post-Pandemic Research Visioning Working Group envisions post-pandemic research. What can and should the research university be, in the pandemic’s wake? Recommendations are not directed solely at administrators; rather, the working group implores all researchers to seize this moment to take a hard and creative look at our research questions, methods, infrastructures, priorities, and communities.
