Last week the White House convened a summit with more than 100 college and university presidents that focused on improving college access for low-income students.
Credentials are central to that conversation. We go to school, learn and gain skills, and we earn credentials that help us access our next education or career opportunity. Our diplomas, degrees and transcripts are our tickets to the next gig. But leading thinkers are also examining how alternative credentials are going to be increasingly critical to accessing opportunities beyond high school.
Parchment sits in the center of that revolution. Our online credentials management platform enables learners to request, collect, stack and put all their credentials to work.
In collaboration with our SXSWedu panel partners from Mozilla Foundation, ACE and Western Governors University, Matt Pittinsky will explore how credentials innovation is opening up new and better opportunities for all.
Watch a short video about why Matt is looking forward to speaking at SXSWedu and shining a spotlight on how the future of credentials is now.
