127: Numbers, Connections, and Hard Work - with Dr. Joyce Jacobsen, President at Hobart and William Smith Colleges

This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #40 - In this episode of The EdUp Experience, we talk with Dr. Joyce Jacobsen, President at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.  Located in beautiful Geneva, NY on a stunning campus, hear how Joyce and her administration have handled CV-19 in the fall and what they are doing to plan for the spring term.  Joyce details how international students and exchange programs have been impacted, why a slight decrease in enrollment and students on-ground might have been a good thing during Covid, and why connections are so important to mental health.   

Joyce P. Jacobsen became the 29th president of Hobart College and the 18th of William Smith College on July 1, 2019. Previously the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at Wesleyan University, Jacobsen is a renowned scholar of economics, an award-winning teacher and a skilled administrator. With more than three decades of experience taking on increasingly complex roles in higher education, Jacobsen received the unanimous recommendation of the Presidential Search Committee and the unanimous vote of the Colleges’ Board of Trustees. She is the first woman to serve as president of Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
