The Impact of COVID-19 on Higher Education: A Schism of Debt, Endowments, and Educational Challenges, Too

Turnaround Management Association


Date: September 30, 2020

Location: Online

Miyoko Sato will speak on a virtual webinar hosted by the Turnaround Management Association on Wednesday, September 30th. 

The larger universities may get banged up a little, but smaller colleges and universities were struggling before COVID-19; what will happen now? How is cash flow impacted? What is happening to dorms without any students living in them? Some colleges/universities are repurposing facilities but must continue debt service despite campus closures or state-mandated shutdowns. The situation surrounding these and other unanswered questions is changing every day. This webinar will address up-to-the minute developments.
