Cost to Value: Higher Education’s Next Big Shift?

Mar 9, 2021

3:30pm – 4:00pm CT

Rising costs and mounting student debt are leading more Americans to ask the question “What is college worth?” To help answer that question, the Postsecondary Value Commission is charged with recommending a definition and measures for gauging the value of postsecondary programs. Commission leaders will preview the group's final report and engage in a lively conversation about how to measure and improve value and the impact of COVID-19 on perceptions of value in higher education.
