Part I: Thought Leadership Series: Learning from Outside of Higher Education to Build an Agile Campus
This first article, taken from a series of interviews with Dr. Doug Guthrie, Elliot Felix, and Dr. Scott Bass, focuses on this complex challenge of universities recognizing their role as key players within their local communities and deeply connected societal realities balanced against a range of internal challenges, such as a mental health crisis and rising costs. To move forward, universities need to acknowledge that many existing approaches are insufficient to meet students’ needs. Change doesn't end at academic and organizational restructuring. A strong, resonant brand is critical. It's a beacon that draws in top-tier students, renowned faculty, and competent administrators. Universities, it's time to step up to the plate. Create an agile campus that meets the needs of students and the wider community - because this is the future of education.
