Tom Andriola, vice chancellor of IT and data, UC Irvine: “At the same time, we cannot shy away from the conversation we need to be having at the leadership level about the “new normal,” what we’ve tried and learned during this horrible period and which aspects do we want to keep in place in the new normal. It’s been a unique situation in that we’ve stepped into our future to deal with these unique set of circumstances, and now we have this opportunity to step back from our future, discuss what we’ve been through, what in it has been better (and what has not), and then strategically decide what stays in place in the post-pandemic world. It just doesn’t normally play out this way, so we’d better take advantage of it.”
