Three critical trends in the 21st century for campus leaders to respond to: Editorial

In an editorial for Inside Higher Ed, Steven Mintz highlights three key issues that campuses need to consider more seriously. First, Mintz writes that the student body has changed significantly, with nontraditional students making up the majority of undergraduates in many cases, but that institutions have not adjusted their calendars, course schedules, and services sufficiently in response. Second, he notes that campuses need to offer new types of courses and learning experiences, such as academic success courses, expanded experiential learning, and maker spaces to support student learning. Finally, Mintz highlights the opportunity colleges and universities have to better prepare students for the “brave new world” after graduation.
