The Russian invasion of Ukraine brought devastation and suffering as well as heroic resistance by the Ukrainian people. Higher education was no exception to this dramatic story. To date, more than 300 Ukrainian schools and universities have been completely destroyed, and more than 2,300 have been damaged. Hundreds of thousands of students and faculty have been forced to leave their homes. Universities have demonstrated tremendous resilience in their response to the war, employing innovative approaches to learning and refocus their research to support the needs of a society under attack. What are the challenges to Ukrainian universities, students and faculty facing during the war? How has it changed their lives and priorities? What is the role of universities in Ukraine's recovery after the war?
