Impact on Higher Education and the Future of Work
September 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Given the unknowns surrounding COVID-19’s impact on student learning, colleges and universities must reimagine future approaches to education and what’s viable about their business models. With an increase in online classes and safety concerns, will students choose to be on campus or stay home? With financial struggles brought on by COVID-19, will some students choose community college before transferring to a four-year institution or forgo college entirely to enter the workforce? What about the thousands of NC students for whom higher education was unattainable prior to the pandemic?
This meeting will examine what we are learning about the impact of COVID-19 in higher education, how colleges and universities are adapting in the near-term to meet the needs of students in an inclusive and equitable way.
