A Nontraditional Approach to Bridging the Skills Gap

Mar 7, 2024

11:00am – 11:30am CT

This session is part of the special 2024 Crossover Day. Attendance is open to all SXSW EDU badgeholders as well as all SXSW badgeholders. As always, SXSW strongly believes in the power of mixing creative communities.

The 40.4 million adults with some college, no credential (SCNC) present a massive opportunity–and moral imperative–to connect nontraditional and adult learners with educational programs that equip them with relevant skills and credentials. Hear how institutions across the country and states like New Jersey are taking an innovative approach to engage and support this population, making it possible for thousands of adults to go back to school and get the skills they need to thrive in the modern economy.
