Announcing the new Higher Education Series!
The Higher Education Series, which was introduced late last week, is a series of questions designed to look at the impacts of the pandemic on post-secondary education in the United States over the next several years. Questions like these have enormous influence on the decisions of policy makers, university and college presidents and administrative staff, as well as students and faculty members. Asking questions surrounding employment, enrollment, financial aid, and student well-being, this series aims to target the future implications of the pandemic on the short and long run economic health of America. The ability to maintain strong educational institutions that provide the next generation's thinkers and leaders is imperative. However, it is currently challenged by school closures, massive changes in teaching styles and platforms, lack of access, and increasingly apparent inequality. With many colleges and universities unsure on how to proceed entering the next school year, answering questions such as these could help create safer and more accurate models for how schools and higher education institutions should open and run.
Currently, this series is comprised of ten questions, with possible additions in the future when more data becomes available to analyze and answer them.
Here are the Higher Education Series questions:
