Upcoming AD&D Webinar - Wednesday, February 28, 2024 | 2:00pm - 3:00 pm EST

Topic: Hot Topics in Higher Education

There are many common issues affecting higher education throughout colleges and universities in the US.  What is your University College, Undergraduate Studies and university at-large doing to address these issues?  Please join us for a guided discussion facilitated by Dr. Arthur Watson, AD&D President and Executive Director of Transition Academic Programs at Texas A&M University.  Discussion topics may include, but will not be limited to the following topics:

  • Rising cost of higher education
  • Justifying the work of University Colleges & Undergraduate Studies
  • Opposition to DEI work at many state institutions
  • Addressing Stop-Out Students (early alerts for potential stop-out students)
  • Budget issues (creative alternatives)

This will be an engaging and thought-provoking conversation among colleagues to share ideas, practices and advice on the issues listed above.  We hope you will join us!
