Recording: Serving Adult Learners: An Equity Imperative, Mar 7, 2023

Colleges are now working to reorient themselves around the needs of a generation of adult learners that’s more diverse in age, race, income, and profession than any in history. Four presidents discuss how this is not just a practical and financial necessity for colleges: it represents a social justice and equity imperative.
