This chapter includes an in-depth analysis of the changes generated by the global health crisis of SARS-CoV2 in higher education. Specifically, this chapter aims to delve into three fundamental themes: (1) The pandemic as a catalyst for change in higher education; (2) The influence of technology as a lever for the evolution of education; and, (3) Reflections on the future of the teaching-learning process. This chapter finds that the current global health crisis marks the beginning of a stage of growth and evolution of online education. And university governance must take into account these factors to guarantee that higher education continues to generate an impact on the development and well-being of society. Technology, new pedagogical models, and a global vision will be the levers that will motivate that the diverse university government approaches incorporate the appropriate leadership and influence mechanisms to each university culture.
