Day 2 presentation

Over the past generation, higher education has become an American success story, serving as a bridge to opportunity for millions.  But the world is changing.  Our economy is demanding more educated workers than our institutions are prepared to produce.  A new majority of students is arriving on our campuses with high and often fragile aspirations.  Colleges and universities face difficult but essential choices to ensure that higher education remains a bridge to opportunity and not a barrier.  Dr. Greenstein will outline those choices and highlight solutions that show promise for serving higher education’s new majority.
