Coronavirus: a message to our global community

April 9, 2020

At a time of unprecedented disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, all of THE’s teams are adapting to support the global higher education community however we can.

The public health crisis has highlighted the vital role that universities play around the world.

Epidemiologists are shaping government responses; virologists are driving the search for vaccines; and institutions are helping local communities, releasing clinical staff to front-line healthcare, and supporting students through an exceptionally difficult period.

All of this has happened at a pace that has been astonishing to witness.

?To do what we can to help, at THE we have adapted our own approach to our work with and for universities too.

Our journalists are working as hard as ever to bring you the latest developments as we navigate our way through these extraordinary events. While our subscribers have access to all of our content all the time, we will continue to make breaking news coverage on the impact of coronavirus free to all, to provide the widest possible service during this period.

Free virtual events

As vital social distancing and lockdowns continue, we are taking our World Summit Series online, with free virtual summits and forums taking place throughout the coming months. Find out more on our Events pages and we hope you will join us to continue to share, explore and challenge the latest insights and developments in global higher education.?

Data insights tools

On 22 April we will be releasing the results of our second THE Impact Ranking, a bold new way of looking at universities’ global impact, through the lens of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The focus of this unique ranking feels more timely than ever, shining a light on the many ways in which universities are contributing to solving the world’s greatest shared challenges. To support universities during this difficult period, we are currently offering a minimum of 15 per cent off our new Impact data tool, the SDG Impact Dashboard, and further discounts for?existing DataPoints customers.
