Abstract:
This short discussion paper on Ethics in Higher Education as a Key Driver for Recovery in a World Living with COVID-19 is the result of a year-long consultation with contributions from experts and practitioners in the field. The higher education sector as a whole has been and continues to be challenged to adapt and to ensure that institutions and students are not only able to survive but to continue and to thrive. Ethics in higher education is at the heart of that dynamic process, serving to identify and address inequalities with ethics as the foundation of the effort to find solutions and to continue to envision a world in which responsible leadership with integrity is the norm. The Globethics.net Board of Foundation endorses this discussion paper and invites readers to engage with the critical issues, questions and recommendations made.
