Eduventures Summit 2018: Higher Ed Remastered

For the past 40 years, higher education had its fair share of controversies but almost everyone agreed on the fundamentals. A college degree was integral to the modern American Dream—the ticket to opportunity, upward social mobility, and a more equitable society. Higher education fostered universal civic values and stood apart from partisan politics. Expanding access to higher education was a widely shared goal.

No longer. The Trump Administration’s stance on higher education is coming into focus, fanning long-smoldering tensions. Certainties like tax breaks to encourage enrollment and the line distinguishing non-profit from for-profit institutions may be swept away. A demand for accountability is in place for all schools that benefit from federal student aid, which would examine graduate outcomes, earnings, and debt repayment program-by-program. Postsecondary education is championed but sub-degree credentials, unaccredited training providers, and apprenticeships are in favor. Nothing is decided, but the direction is clear.

In recent decades, higher education policy has been about fine-tuning the system, not a battle of ideas. Today, the call for a smaller government challenges public spending, and private wrestles public good.

Eduventures Summit 2018, which coincides with our 25th anniversary, is an opportunity to debate this new reality, and to ask tough questions:

  • Who should enroll in higher education, when, and why?
  • How can fit between student and school be strengthened, and the student experience be enhanced and made inclusive?
  • Is the bachelor’s degree too long and expensive to play the starring role?
  • For non-traditional students, does higher education too often over-promise and under-deliver?
  • How can leaders do more to scale up quality and effective practices?
  • Should schools and companies work harder to ensure technology and data improve quality and lowers cost?
