Building a Strategy to Sustain Growth in the Next Normal

A reimagination of higher education requires more than some tactical tweaks. Leaders need to come together with industry to align programming to meet learner and employer needs.

Illumination by Modern Campus: Episode 19

On this week’s episode of Illumination by Modern Campus, we look at reimagining higher education to serve the modern learner and build sustainable growth at your institution. 

The challenges facing colleges and universities today require more than tactical tweaks. How can leaders reimagine the institution and its place in the lives of learners and in the economy?

Learners aren’t going to stop at a degree. In fact, many learners are instead looking for short-term credentials that can stack into a degree throughout their careers. This requires the institution to break away from some of its traditional structure. What does it take to start building a robust, lifelong learning lifecycle?

This isn’t a concept that should stay within a particular type of institution or region. To truly create a seamless learning ecosystem across the higher ed space, all institutions need to adapt this approach. In looking at creating a more intentional continuing education concept, how does that play out in a system view? 

When the pandemic disrupted higher ed, we saw institutions tap into their Continuing Education and Workforce Development to help get them on track to serving their students. But these more short-term courses aren’t going away anytime soon. So what role do Continuing Education and Workforce Education play in helping to realize this next normal for higher ed?

Listen to this week’s episode of Illumination by Modern Campus, featuring a panel of presidents across the higher ed space, to unlock the answers to these questions and discover some best practices to drive sustainable growth at your institution.
