30 Million Students by 2030: How to Grow the Market for Higher Ed Post-Covid

Forty percent of students may not show up on campus this all, and even before the pandemic the higher education system was facing major challenges: declining enrollment, increasing competition, and escalating costs. Is a shakeout inevitable? How does higher education actually grow its market and seize the biggest opportunity out there: working learners? This is not the only key to the future of postsecondary education but also to the future of social mobility in the U.S. This session will grapple with:

•    What working learners need and want

•    The available jobs that provide both short-term employment and future opportunities

•    How should higher education reposition itself for the class of 2022 and beyond?
