June 24, 2021
A case study conducted and authored by Webster University Chancellor Elizabeth (Beth) J. Stroble, President Julian Z. Schuster, and Chief Diversity Officer Vincent C. Flewellen was chosen through a “blind-reviewed selection” process to be published in the special issue of the Journal of Higher Education Management.
As stated in the opening of the Webster University paper "Rooted in Resilience: A Global University Responds to Twin Pandemics," which can be found in its entirety here:
“Webster’s global presence provides a singular perspective on the twin pandemics. In addressing the varied manifestations of underlying economic inequities and their impact on members of our community, we have implemented specific strategies and tactics with our colleagues and collaborators to arrest the compounded negative effects of the twin pandemics. Our experiences have identified: (a) the necessity of a systemic and integrated approach to managing the twin pandemics; and (b) the presence of an adequate organizational structure which facilitates coordinated activity among vital divisions of the University system: academics and overall operations; communications; advancement; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
