The Proliferation of Low Cost and Free Alternatives Across Higher Ed

November 29-30, 2021
1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time

The Presidential Experience Lab is a signature event of the Higher Ed Strategy Forum and a unique opportunity for college and university presidents to take inspiration from out-of-industry exemplars to consider thought-provoking concepts, lessons and trends that can help shape their leadership efforts and institutional strategy. At their best, the Experience Labs allow presidents to move beyond their day-to-day focus on the urgent issues of campus to engage in bold, future-focused discussions that reframe their perspectives on higher ed strategy.

On November 29-30, 2021, in partnership with Grow with Google, we will explore disruption in the higher ed sector by short format, free and low cost alternatives that are proliferating across the landscape.

Please join Sally Amoruso, EAB’s Chief Partner Officer and Lisa Gevelber, Founder and Vice President of Grow with Google for this virtual two day event that will consider the impact of these options, the employer’s increasingly important role in the ecosystem, potential collaboration opportunities as well as the fundamental questions of higher ed’s value proposition which undergird the choices many students now face. Learn more about Grow with Google and stay tuned for an agenda and an announcement of additional panelists.

The event is limited to Presidents and Chancellors.
