Cliff Jumping: Higher Ed’s Best Bet for Survival
The looming demographic cliff flummoxing college leaders will significantly impact campuses that prioritize a “traditional” college-going population: middle/upper-income, white high school graduates. Centering strategies on minority students (majority U.S. population by 2045) and adult learners—rather than just accommodating them—is a viable strategy for institutional success and financial health. We’ll explore what this means for culture, org structure, instruction, and recruitment/retention.
