As employers, we need to be asking: How can I help each individual at my organization advance? W/ this shift in thinking, leaders can start to think critically about the pathways that are available to individuals, and their role in facilitating their bit.ly/3nxZhKW… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Too often institutions expect learners to adapt to them when #collegesanduniversities should actually be meeting learners where they are. Listen in to hear how solutions like #onlinelearning can help. twitter.com/WorkingNation/…
As we work to reinvigorate #highered's promise, it's incumbent upon institutions to carefully consider how elements of their design reinforce the status quo & hinder their ability to meet the needs of America’s diversity of learners. My latest in @Forbes: bit.ly/3ZWvdqO
Now more than ever, we need policies that enable promising solutions for closing the #skillsgap—not undermine them. Great conversation with David Barnes (@IBM), Michael Hansen (@Cengage), & @oates_jane (@WorkingNation). #onlinelearning #SXSWEDU twitter.com/insidehighered…

As pathways such as #microcredentials and #apprenticeships gain traction, how can we ensure that they lead to #success for those who use them?
@Pulsipher_WGU, president of @wgu, shares his thoughts with #WorkingNationOverheard: youtu.be/0NqguwLkHPU
In closing a loophole that could enable enterprising students to earn their degrees fully online, the University of California has propagated the perception that college is for the privileged. My latest in @insidehighered: bit.ly/41Pjg7x #onlinelearning
Heading to #SXSWEDU 2023, I'm humbled by our @wgu grads who celebrated earning their degrees this past weekend. As leaders meet this week and discuss how to reinvigorate the promise of #education, let's remember what's at stake.
Catch me at #SXSWEDU 2023 next week as I join @JillBuban (@EdAssistBH) & Lisa Schumacher (@McDonaldsCorp) to discuss how we can can break down barriers to education and help #workinglearners climb the ladder of opportunity. Learn more about our panel here: bit.ly/SXSW2023wgu
Thrilled to be joining this incredible group of leaders at #SXSWEDU2023 next week to discuss the need for policies to enable rather than undermine promising solutions for closing the #skillsgap. #onlinelearning twitter.com/CengageLearnin…
Even without a federal mandate, institutions must hold themselves accountable for providing value to students right now. Thrilled to partner w/ @ThirdWayEDU's @MichelleDimino & offer our thoughts on how to reimagine #highered in @thehill: bit.ly/3Su9gwe
When institutions deconstruct preconceived norms about how to serve students & unleash the power of tech, innovative solutions prevail that can have a compounding benefit on society. See how @wgu is leveraging tech to help solve the #nursingshortage: bit.ly/3EwmMtD
As we work to equitably expand access to #highered, let's be clear: access without attainment is just scam.
Yesterday it was my great privilege to sit alongside @GovofCO and @LCTCSpresident and offer our perspectives on how to expand access, reduce costs, and increase value in #HigherEd. Learn more: twitter.com/insidehighered…
@EdWorkforceCmte Thank you for the opportunity to share my perspective. With an emphasis on enabling innovation with accountability—particularly in the areas of access, relevancy, and cost—we can design a system that works for everyone.
I sincerely hope these thoughts provoke you to do what you can in support of our #education system and the #learners we desire to serve. You can read my full testimony here: bit.ly/edworkforcetes…
While our #goals may have remained the same, the progression of history and technology means that the policies we need to achieve those goals must evolve. We cannot let nostalgia impede progress, lest our actions propagate privilege rather than the #AmericanDream. (2/3)
Today, I testified in front of @EdWorkforceCmte in hopes of helping to architect what our country so desperately needs: A #highered system that connects a diverse population of individuals with the opportunities of the 21st century, w/o bankrupting students or taxpayers. (1/3)
Join me live this morning for @EdWorkforceCmte’s hearing about education in America at 8:15 MT/10:15 ET, or catch it on demand if you can’t make it live: bit.ly/educationandwo… #educationpolicy
Tomorrow, I offer my perspective to @EdWorkforceCmte on #highered challenges & Congress’s role in providing direction for the system. It's time pathways to opportunity are available for every individual, not just a select few. Tune in at 10:15 am ET: bit.ly/educationandwo…
Expansive missions in #highered are more readily found than clarity of purpose. Misalignment between student expectations & institutional incentives is rampant. My latest in @insidehighered challenges institutions to double down on their primary objective: bit.ly/3YcUwn4
It was great to be with the @kfcfoundation and @LtGovColeman today to celebrate an incredible partnership that will enable @kfc restaurant employees to receive 100% #tuition coverage at @wgu. Learn more: bit.ly/3WC7utd
Thanks to @EdWorkforceCmte and @virginiafoxx, the PELL Act will help more learners acquire the #skills they need to be successful and expand access to high-quality credentials. twitter.com/EdWorkforceCmt…
ICYMI, I was recently featured in this piece authored by the @PresidentsForum. Along with several of the nation's most innovative university and college presidents, we share our hopes for learners in 2023. @ChristensenInst: bit.ly/3HkhnYp

It was great to be with @TimBoyumTV at @SpecNews1RDU this week! We discussed the overall decline in college #enrollment during the pandemic, and the unique opportunity @wgu has had in continuing to provide affordable degree pathways that are directly relevant to the #workforce.
