The Second IAU Global Survey Report on the Impact of COVID-19

In February 2021, the International Association of Universities launched the second edition of the global survey on the impact of COVID-19 on higher education to monitor the situation one year into the pandemic.

The survey gathered replies from 496 HEIs in 112 countries and worldwide. This second edition was a comprehensive survey gathering institutional responses in all aspects of higher education mission and functioning, namely, governance, teaching and learning, research and community/societal engagement. The report, Higher Education One Year into the COVID-19 Pandemic, introduces the global perspective and a comparison between regions and public and private HEIs.

At the same time, the survey results generate concern about the future for some institutions. Still, it also highlights several positive outcomes, where the crisis has brought about new opportunities and possibilities.

The report offers a very detailed picture of the impact of COVID-19 on higher education using the responses by higher education institutions and other stakeholders one year into the pandemic. The webinar held on 1 March 2022 officially launched the report presenting an overview and focusing on the main results.
