Using Technology to Remove Continued Ed Barriers

Underserved populations – Hispanic students, rural communities, and full-time workers continue to face barriers in higher ed. that prevent their fulfillment of the American dream. To become leaders in education/workforce development, how can we remove these challenges through innovation in the platforms we deliver, access to new learning pathways, and affordable pricing models? This panel focuses on what we’re doing right and how to close this gap/ensure educational achievement for all students.
