Admissions, Disrupted

Jun 1, 2017

The U.S. admissions landscape is changing as higher ed and the students it educates face a startling reality. Specifically:

College is expensive and getting even more so. Over $1.4 trillion — that’s how much Americans owe in student loan debt. Since 1978, college tuition and fees have increased over 1000 percent.

Applicant pools are shrinking as opportunities do the same. Four in 10 U.S. colleges have seen a decline in international applicants for the 2017 term. Meanwhile in Canada, many universities are seeing 20 percent or higher increases.

The very value of education is in question. $9.2 billion — that’s how much funding the President’s budget may cut from the Department of Education.

Can higher ed, an industry known for its reluctance to change, evolve to stay afloat?  Robert Ruiz, VP of Strategic Enrollment at Liaison International, explores the answer to this question during Admissions, Disrupted, a webinar from Liaison’s Future of Admissions series:
