Podcast: Serving Working Students with Innovation and Agility

Posted by Inside Higher Ed on December 22, 2020

This new episode of The Key with Inside Higher Ed features leaders from Purdue Global University and Broward College in Florida, two institutions that are focused on offering credentials that work for under-served student groups, including students who hold down jobs while pursuing credentials.

Gregory Adam Haile, Broward’s president, talked about the college’s work to add short-term credentials that are stackable and feature embedded professional certifications. He also talked about how the college travels into its community to help find students who may not be interested in pursuing a degree right now.

We also spoke with Frank Dooley, chancellor of Purdue Global University, an online, public institution that enrolls roughly 36,000 students, 70 percent of whom are eligible to receive federal Pell Grants. Dooley talked about Purdue Global’s philosophy on growth and how to be nimble to better meet the demands of students and employers.
