A new report by consulting firm Bain & Company is forecasting the majority of higher education to be in a tough financial spot three years from now due to a confluence of operational challenges affecting institutions.
Dedicated to embracing an evolving higher education landscape that's cost-effective, career-minded and digitally native, Vermont has begun to revitalize its once-flailling student body. Two big initiatives pushing this change are recent school mergers and a powerful free community college pipeline.
Even though they are digital natives, students want to interact with instructors and administrators, be part of something outside their dorms and apartments, and feel like they have a place to go when they need help.
Students increasingly expect their schools to offer academic support, career counseling and even social activities online, according to the 2022 CIN EdTech Student Survey by the College Innovation Network at Western Governors University.
