Abstract

Nowadays, the word crisis is used in different meanings than its original one in history. However, its current use particularly for the pandemic has close connections with its past meaning. In either case, the crisis indicates some procedures towards a solution which require a set of leadership skills. In education sector, these skills could be more complex than the others. When universities are concerned, due to their sophisticated structures, these institutions need efficient and effective leaders who would be responsive to the crisis situations and be creative to meet the challenges brought by the pandemic. On finding solutions to the issues, the university leader is expected to mentor, to guide and to encourage the staff as well as the institutions to be able to realize authentic research and innovation which would create sui generis results and opportunities for the good of all.
