Stories abound in the news today with one large, lingering question, “Is a college degree really worth the investment?” This question will hopefully be answered on Tuesday, September 9 at the New York Times Schools for Tomorrow conference. In its fourth year, this invitation-only conference brings together university presidents and provosts, foundations and research organizations, entrepreneurs and journalists to discuss key issues and trends within education including but not limited to rising college costs, college completion and closing the gap between education and the workforce.
This year includes the inaugural “3 Minutes to Launch” series, a spotlight on some of the most innovative ideas and solutions in higher education. Parchment CEO Matt Pittinsky will be a featured speaker in this series and will share insights into the role credentials play in our society. Additional thought leaders featured in the “3 Minutes to Launch” series represent the American Honors College, Lumina Foundation, Minerva Project and Noodle.
