Topic: Bucking Enrollment Trends to Grow in a Challenging Environment
The higher education space experienced significant challenges since the pandemic, and we’re still adapting. Maintaining viability over the next decade means seeing learners through a new lens. It also means foundationally changing the way standard processes at every phase of the learner lifecycle need to evolve. From enrollment management and retention, to learner engagement and communication, to alumni engagement—a future-ready postsecondary institution needs to realign around student centricity and lifelong learning. This session will share ideas, strategies and best practices colleges and universities across North America have implemented to ready themselves for an uncertain future.
