Today’s Higher Ed Challenges, Tomorrow’s Workforce Opportunities

Higher education is in a period of undeniable flux, partially in response to the global pandemic, but also due to trends that have unfolded across several decades.

Liaison’s free webinar, Today’s Higher Ed Challenges, Tomorrow’s Workforce Opportunities (Thursday, September 17 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET), brings together academic leaders and policy experts to examine how we can best address today’s most important challenges while also better preparing our students for lifelong success.

Addressing issues including access in education, evolving teaching models and bridging the gap between academia and the workplace, panelists will draw upon their wealth of combined experiences to answer higher education’s most pressing questions, including:

  • What should schools do this fall and winter to prepare current students to launch their careers after Spring 2021 graduation?
  • What new opportunities to challenge assumptions and reimagine practices have arisen this year?
  • How can institutions leverage their shared community influence to create or strengthen partnerships?
  • What tools or resources should institutions use to accomplish these goals?
