College enrollments saw a huge decline following the onset of Covid-19, with the majority of institutions experiencing continued drops. Even before the pandemic, questions had arisen about the validity of the traditional campus experience, and there had been a push to improve college access. These factors have driven the development of an ethos that now asks: What is the value of a college degree?
High-school students are increasingly presented with alternative education and career pathways. Additionally, a “demographic cliff” will bring a sharp drop in high-school graduates, further tightening enrollment numbers. Colleges are looking for solutions to their pressing enrollment challenges.
Join us to hear a panel of college leaders discuss the factors contributing to enrollment declines and explore the opportunities that can help your programs and services compete.
