Higher education leaders must assume responsibility for finding overlooked talent: Opinion

Postsecondary leaders must learn how to recognize talent that would otherwise go unrecognized, writes Hollis Robbins. Robbins argues that many talented people on campus are overlooked, even though there is currently an employment crisis in higher education. The author encourages leaders to value and nurture those who may be difficult to see because they may not be taking traditional life or work pathways, may be overlooked due to social justice issues, or may be part of an underrepresented minority group. Robbins argues that recognizing talent may raise talented individuals’ aspirations, giving them confidence to achieve more in their lives.
