The Future of Higher Education: Sustaining Change, Post-Election

Thursday, February 25, 2021 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Zoom Meeting - Virtual

Panelists will discuss the existing and new policies of the current presidential administration and how these policies will affect the landscape of higher education. Moderated by Marybeth Gasman, Samuel DeWitt Proctor Endowed Chair in Education and a Distinguished Professor at Rutgers University, panelists will be asked to analyze the policies, delve into the policy implications, and speak directly to their impact on educational equity, with a particular focus on how policymakers can create sustainable change. The session will end with suggestions about how policymakers and legislators can ensure that the lessons learned from the previous administration and the key takeaways from COVID-19 are used to create a better future (contrary to “a new normal”) for vulnerable populations.

Panelists include:  
   Donald Heller, Vice President of Operations; Professor of Education, University of San Francisco
   Martha Kanter, CEO, College Promise; Senior Fellow, New York University; U.S. Under Secretary of Education (2009-2013)
