More, More, More: Taking On the Enrollment, Equity & Completion Challenges of Today and Tomorrow

Whether you’re wrestling with regional or national economic imperatives or the need for an engaged and informed citizenry, one thing is clear: to respond to today’s challenges and tomorrow’s possibilities, we need more, and more diverse students, being more successful on their learning journeys than ever before. Whether their paths take them to a technical certification or a Ph.D., these demographically, economically, and experientially diverse students deserve our best effort to help them learn well and finish strong. In this presentation, we’ll unpack this “more, more, more” challenge, and explore a range of impactful initiatives—e.g., policy, practice, technology-fueled and deeply personal—that are already moving the needle. Moreover, we’ll wrestle with the organizational and cultural issues that can either cripple or power this vital work.
