Colleges are confronting the tough realities of today’s hiring climate. Top talent have high expectations of their employers, and as they seek greater flexibility and higher pay, institutions are seeing fewer applications from qualified candidates. How can colleges and universities remain competitive?

The Chronicle will convene a panel of experts to examine the issue at the upcoming Virtual Forum, “The Talent Crisis in Higher Education.” During the hour-long session, our panel will discuss strategies to help these institutions attract and retain top talent during this fraught time: 

  • How can colleges remain employers of choice?

  • What can colleges do to compete with the private sector for in-demand roles?

  • How can they retain the talented employees on staff and create meaningful career paths for them?
