People working in higher education have experienced extraordinary levels of change resulting in massive uncertainty and crushing workloads. Members of support units that focus on educational development, educational technologies, student services, and equity and inclusion have been especially hard hit. With such volatility, how do we find our footing without changing everything? Focusing on the resilience of our support units provides one option. We share a framework of organizational resilience (OR) to reflect on our experiences and identify new ways to bolster our resilience. Through this session, participants will identify how they can apply OR concepts to their organizational context.
