Showcase Webinar | Meeting Students Where They Are

Meeting students where they are by providing secure universal access to the services they need helps institutions ensure that students succeed. Multimodal and flexible services need to be shaped by students' needs and outcomes and aligned with institutional resources.

This will be a panel discussion with institutional and industry leaders and will include opportunities for audience engagement. Bring your questions!


Join this session to:

  • Learn how to help institutional leaders understand how to think about digital affordances and benefits more expansively, but still realistically.
  • Explore how providing new ways to access resources creates more resilient higher education institutions.
  • Dig into examples of how universal access to services increases equity and accessibility for students.
