COVID-19’s Impact on Universities and Colleges

November 3, 2021

McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC labor and employment attorney Kelley E. Kaufman will address the novel coronavirus’s damaging effect on institutions of higher education nationwide.

Many colleges and universities are encountering enrollment, fiscal and competitive challenges made more dire by the pandemic, as well as the realization that major strategic and operational changes are needed to forge a sustainable path forward. That can include sale of assets; significant downsizings; renegotiation of collective bargaining agreements, leases and other long-term debt and legal obligations; mergers; and consolidations.
