Dawn L. I. Houghton

We are assembling a high-caliber panel of 15 experts from academics, economics, and sociology to discuss the innovations that will determine the future of higher education and its impact on society over a 4-day panel of online engagement.

Over 35 million adults have earned college credits but have fallen short of attaining a degree. We will discuss the current state and future trends, the social and economic impact of more adults getting their degrees, and collaborate on how to break down the barriers stopping students from completing their studies.

This is a unique opportunity for passionate, like-minded professionals to join 20 panelists and advance the thinking in this field. As a member, you'll network with other panelists, learn more than you contribute, and get rewarded and recognized in the form of points and cash rewards. This robust knowledge networking experience is moderated by an expert facilitator and is open asynchronously around-the-clock for your convenience over 4 days. You will also receive a $200 honorarium.

Each day of the 4 days, the facilitator will introduce a new subtopic exploring a new facet related to understanding and reducing the barriers that are stopping adults from earning their degrees.

Project Objectives:
- Better understand the needs of the market.
- Explore and map the current landscape.
- Identify future directions.
- Determine a recommended path.

This engagement is expected to launch on August 20th.
