New Responsibilities for Postsecondary Education in the 21st Century - Sponsored by SAP Public Services
The health and prosperity of humanity worldwide increasingly depends on the reliable delivery of education and training to support the innovation-driven 21st-century economy and careers. And yet the gap between what's required to complete college successfully and readiness among the underprepared is widening, in both traditional and nontraditional populations. Chancellor Zimpher makes the case for how universities can—and must—be leaders in working to close that gap through creative, evidence-based, and scalable interventions that campuses and systems can and should embrace to better serve this nation, its prosperity, and the ongoing success of its citizens. Transformational changes in the ways universities deliver instruction must include applied learning, digital access, seamless transfer, and multiple learning supports to meet the demands of access, completion, and success.
