Where to Next? Incorporating the SDGs into higher education strategic and operational plans and practices

Promotional image for virtual roundtable discussion

Higher education institutions play a critical role in delivering on global sustainability goals

Around the globe, higher education institutions (HEIs) are actively incorporating elements of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into their strategic plans and priorities in numerous domains, including governance, campus operations, teaching & curriculum, research, and community engagement activities. This work requires critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and innovation – all the hallmarks of active leadership.

In this virtual roundtable, we explore the challenges higher ed administration teams are navigating, and the methods and practices they are applying to identify opportunities to improve, introduce, and advance their institutional goals and the higher education sector’s commitment to Agenda 2030.

NOTE: This event has been rescheduled to October 26, 2022.
