Skyrocketing student loan debt. Shaky job markets. Declining opportunity for social mobility. For the first time in history, young adults with college experience make up a larger percentage of those unemployed.
In short, the promise of a college education is not what it used to be. In order to address these challenges, we need leadership from institutions, legislators, and innovators.
Our panel features leadership from the University of Texas at Austin, Texas Higher Education legislative leaders, and leading entrepreneurs focused on restoring the promise of higher learning. Together, they'll discuss how stakeholders can work together to create an environment that is responsive to student needs, fiscally responsible, and suited for learning in the new millennia.
These leaders will discuss how to work together to ensure our best institutions are providing the best education possible and preparing students for the future.
