Is higher ed going to win the adult upskilling game?

Reported by Higher Ed Dive, nearly half of all Americans between the ages of 25-64 don’t have a postsecondary credential. At the same time, the pandemic fast-forwarded a whole lot of employer changes, including comfortability with remote and outsourced employees. More and more of these adults will likely need to find ways to upskill in order to be more employable. Will they look to higher ed or elsewhere for that pathway?

The takeaway? Higher ed has a tremendous opportunity right now to be the jobs pathway solution for tens of millions of adults. Will they see us as their best option?

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