At New York Tech, Sova's Climate Scan process took place during a time of unprecedented challenges, driven and exacerbated by the pandemic. Our university had a great plan, but it required adaptation for new circumstances created by COVID for a post-COVID world. Sova's process helped mobilize our community around planning and re-envisioning what it means for a university to be student focused.

At New York Tech, Sova’s Climate Scan process took place during a time of unprecedented challenges, driven and exacerbated by the pandemic. Our university had a great plan, but it required adaptation for new circumstances created by COVID for a post-COVID world. Sova’s process helped mobilize our community around planning and re-envisioning what it means for a university to be student focused. The Sova team was highly responsive, considerate, and flexible, and they consistently went above and beyond to respond to our questions and concerns, engage internal stakeholders, and provide wisdom and insight regarding the process. Further, Sova’s feedback and recommendations were an essential springboard for critical conversations, developing important ideas for challenging the status quo and creating our current action plan.
