Why is Higher Ed So Molasses Slow?Play Now
Why is higher education molasses slow? We’re asking two change-makers: Shawn Benner, Associate Dean of the College of Innovation and Design and the Director of the Human-Environment Systems Program at Boise State University and John “Ski” Sygielski, President of HACC Central Pennsylvania’s Community College.
They highlight the wall of student debt higher ed is up against. Debts that will take generations to pay off, if they ever are. We’ll discuss the barriers to speeding up higher ed. Did you know only 14% of adults in this country have a college degree? And yet, a degree remains essential for many career paths. Shawn and Ski are driving change at their institutions. They’re creating systems that help higher ed move at the pace of other industries. They’re encouraging higher ed to speed up. This episode is as inspiring as it is educational.
