Universities that reject ‘business as usual’ have best chance of surviving COVID-19

Businesses — whether large or small, or whether they are healthcare, educational cultural or recreational institutions — all have been tragically affected by COVID-19. For colleges and universities, the beginning of the fall semester will be especially challenging.

Even prior to the onset of the coronavirus, many universities and colleges were confronted with dire challenges, particularly enrollment declines (down for the ninth year in a row and more than 2 million this decade); rising operating costs; and competition from less expensive, online, for-profit educational vendors. Almost 60 institutions of higher learning — public and private non-profit — have gone out of business or merged over the past four years.

Prudential to exit U.S. business as first-half operating profit falls

By Carolyn Cohn

LONDON (Reuters) – British insurer Prudential said on Tuesday it planned to spin off its U.S. business Jackson to focus on Asia and Africa, as its adjusted operating profit fell 3% in the first half.

Prudential spun off its European funds unit M&G last year.

Reuters reported earlier this year that Prudential was considering a divestment of Jackson.

Pressure had built on the insurer after U.S. hedge fund Third Point took a more than $2 billion stake earlier this year and

In early June, as a firestorm of racial discontent swept the United States in the wake of the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer, business schools reassessed their efforts to achieve more diversity in their student and faculty ranks. Among them was the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, where Dean Scott DeRue issued a lengthy and detailed “commitment to action” that included the creation of a Dean’s Council for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion composed of students, faculty, staff, and alumni, and a DEI Curriculum Taskforce charged with “looking at DEI broadly, and race specifically, in Ross School courses and co-curricular activities.” The dean promised the work
