Leveraging Stimulus Funds to Support Adult Learners: June 10, 12-1 p.m. CST
As employers ramp up hiring, colleges have a unique opportunity to help drive the economic recovery by scaling programs that prepare students for good jobs. This is particularly important for displaced workers looking to upskill. With significant new higher education stimulus funding flowing to institutions, and new federal guidance that allows those funds, including student aid dollars, to support adult learners in short-term programs, colleges have a unique opportunity to accelerate their work. This webinar, co-hosted by ACCT, ESG, and SHEEO, will highlight innovative institutional and state policies and practices to better target and support adult learners looking to reskill or enrolling in higher education for the first time.
