Sponsored episode: Revisioning Higher Ed in a Post-Pandemic World – Allan Belton, PLU and Ivan Harrell, Tacoma Community College – #128
Manage episode 291456861 series 2480007
Covid has disrupted every aspect of our society, but its impact on education may be its most long lasting. Pierce County is blessed with a wealth of higher ed institutions: UWT, Evergreen Tacoma, University of Puget Sound, Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma Community College, Pierce College, and Bates & Clover Park Technical Colleges are all of such quality that we take them for granted.
As we emerge from the pandemic, school leaders across the world are re-imagining the work at their institutions. At the same time on the student end, after rejecting online instruction at full tuition rates, many 2020 high school grads took a gap year. They will hopefully be returning to campuses later this year. It is going to be a very interesting fall.
We invited two college presidents, Allan Belton from PLU and Ivan Harell from Tacoma Community College, onto the show to talk about all these issues and others facing their schools, faculty, and students.
