A Call for Systemic Change: Regaining Trust in College Admission
February 13 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
Much has been written in the past year about the coming “enrollment crunch.” Individual college responses, while necessary, are not sufficient given declining public trust, rising prices, declining numbers of high school graduates, an admissions process that is not understood and assumed unfair, and now the potential “free-for-all”with the elimination of several code of ethics principles as a result of the DOJ “restraint of trade” allegation. To serve students and bolster institutional ability to deliver, we need to act systemically.
Our panelists will offer observations on how higher education might change to meet the educational needs of a traditional population that is declining while shifting more toward lower income and under-represented students. How can we rise to the challenge and assure that every student who wants a college education can get one?
