How Community Colleges Are Pivoting This Fall to Meet the Needs of Students

Learn how your two-year institution can best use your agility and unique strengths advantageously.


The pandemic coupled with economic hardship has created an enrollment shortfall for many community colleges. In many cases, those who were planning on attending this fall find themselves out of work, working additional hours, and/or grappling with childcare/homeschooling challenges. During this two-hour recorded discussion, you will hear about some of the barriers students are experiencing and how community colleges are pivoting to meet their needs.
