COVID-19 has brought unprecedented change to higher education. In March 2020, much of the United States shut down, with most colleges and universities flipping fully online overnight. The public health crisis has created a severe economic recession that is not usually cured by our normal financial tools. Over the next year, New America and SHEEO have partnered to understand the effect of the pandemic and resulting economic crisis on higher education. This website represents our related work. It will be updated periodically. This page was last updated June 6, 2021.
