How we act on the challenges of higher education now will determine where America stands in the future. We must cultivate our individual and collective potential by navigating these shifts in our educational landscape with creativity, flexibility, humanity and vision. Embracing responsible, ethically-tuned innovation is key to shifting the position of higher ed institutions in a changing landscape. An educated citizenry/workforce is the best insurance for our future so we must commit ourselves to creating learner centered institutions that can serve individuals, employers, research needs and communities. This perspective comes from 10+ years of leadership development coaching and training and 5+ years of working in and around higher education institutions exploring the spectrum of higher education innovation.
