Beyond the Return to Normal in the Decade Ahead

Download the white paper examining future trends in higher education.

Over the past two years, the pandemic has disrupted higher education, forcing institutions to change. Higher education can’t return to its old way of doing business and expect to survive. Colleges need to transform and distinguish themselves by balancing tradition and stability with innovation and dynamism.

In this white paper by Jeffrey Selingo, a New York Times best-selling author, you will: 

  • Discover five opportunities for the decade ahead, where institutions can set themselves apart in this post-pandemic era, based on research and in-depth interviews with presidents, planners, and technologists. 

  • Get inspired by real-time examples of schools with teams that are thinking differently about innovation and finding success, such as Wake Forest University, Northeastern University, and the University of Minnesota at Rochester. 

  • Explore how institutions are shifting models and mindsets to set themselves up to compete and attract the next generation of students.

  • Understand seven common denominators of concerns faced by all types of higher education institutions.
