On the theme Universities for the public good: reasserting the value of higher education post-pandemic, this summit will virtually unite leaders from across the Latin America region to examine how research universities can respond to the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic to the higher education sector and society at large.

Amidst this period of extreme social and economic uncertainty, we aim to have a progressive and constructive forum about rebuilding the sector.  Leading researchers, policy-makers, and institutional experts will share their experience of maintaining their institutions’ research and teaching this year, and discuss the strategies they must take to build resilience, grow their impact and assert themselves as vital public assets for progressing and safeguarding Latin American society.

Our speakers include

Vahan Agopyan
University of São Paulo
Hilary Beckles
University of the West Indies
Raquel Bernal
Academic vice-rector
University of the Andes
