Back to School at Midlife

On a mission to transform higher education to address shifting demographics (lower birthrates and increasing lifespans), Stanford University launched an innovative program to help adults in midlife pivot, discover and design their next chapter. Notre Dame, University of Minnesota and others have started or are exploring similar transition programs to fit their school’s unique culture and needs. Join us to discuss why and how integrating multiple generations can benefit your college and community.
