Universities in a Changing World: HR’s response to the COVID-19 crisis


The ACU is an international organization dedicated to building a better world through higher education. International collaboration is central to this ambition: by bringing universities together from around the world  and crucially the people who study and work within them the ACU helps to advance knowledge, promote understanding, broaden minds, and improve lives.

COVID-19 has disrupted life globally, and the higher education sector is no exception. HR professionals continue to play a significant role in supporting university leaders, staff, and students to navigate the challenges caused by COVID and future ways of working and learning.

This event aims to maximize learning from good practice in HR in higher education institutions from around the world.

Over the course of two days, delegates will gain valuable insights into how other HR professionals are responding to COVID-19 at their institutions. From mental health to remote working - expert speakers will explore a range of timely topics pertinent to HR in higher education in this current climate.


Sessions will explore the following sub-themes:

  • HR professionals as higher education strategists
  • Shifting priorities in HR
  • Mental health and well-being
  • Diversity, inclusion and belonging
  • HR in a digital age


The conference will be hosted over Zoom and participants will be able to join with a laptop, computer or mobile device.
