Adler College Rethinks the 2-Year Degree

Adler College in Portland, Oregon is rethinking the 2-year degree.

Reported by EdSurge, Adler College, still in the planning and fundraising stages, aims at re-thinking the first two years of a student’s collegiate career.

Cohort-driven, and with an integrated curriculum designed to be taken in blocks of 4 courses, the primary goal of Adler College is to address the skills gap that currently exists – to prepare students to both be successful in earning their bachelor’s degree, and better prepared for their first job post-degree.

The takeaway? With more and more employers claiming that higher ed is graduating students unprepared to be effective contributors right out of college, how do we better connect our programs and curriculum with the requirements of the market?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
