Summary

The U.S. has stalled in tertiary education completion. Millions of young people are left with lower prospects for employment and limited options to fund their education. We will discuss thinking beyond the zero-sum game of attracting, retaining and graduating students from the traditional pools of undergrad and masters-level candidates. We will address the urgent need to design and perfect models that expand the numbers and types of students that universities invest in. Students require change on the part of higher education. And it is up to us — leaders in higher education — to push for and foster new ideas, new tools and to continually evolve how we provide access to affordable education.
