The workforce in America is seeing unprecedented shake-ups at all levels. Higher education is no exception. American colleges are seeing resignations from entry-level positions to college presidents.
Dave Opton recently told Forbes,
“Whether executives have chosen to leave or stay, the pandemic has provided senior-level professionals an opportunity to evaluate their long-term career goals and priorities. At the executive level, it is not so much the story of the Great Resignation as the Great Reevaluation. Executives are assessing their work-lives and pondering their options for the next great chapter in their careers. They want to be excited about work again. Many executives seem to be open to moving jobs and locations, even exploring different career paths, if it means finding work that is fulfilling to them. They are reimagining what their work lives could be.”
