Liberal-arts colleges have long faced enrollment challenges, and the pandemic has exacerbated the issue. As many campuses around the country are forced to cut academic programs, slash budgets, and furlough faculty, what lies ahead for these institutions?
To explore the challenges and opportunities facing liberal-arts colleges, Liz McMillen, executive editor at The Chronicle, moderates a virtual forum of college leaders. During their discussion, the next in our ongoing series, The Road Ahead for Higher Education, the panelists will seek to answer:
- What are liberal-arts colleges doing to meet changing student expectations and interests?
- How will they ensure long-term sustainability?
- How are leaders working to reassert the value of a liberal-arts education?
