National Louis University
Professional Pathways Experience Day at NLU
Thursday, October 1, 2015
9 am 4 pm with evening reception
National Louis University • 122 S. Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL

National Louis University, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will host a gathering of education's most innovative and progressive experts to uncover new solutions to enduring barriers that prevent access to and persistence through higher education for millions of American students. Due to rising tuition—and rising debt—coupled with growing un- and underemployment for graduates, college's value proposition has been called sharply into question. For a large contingent of tomorrow's college students, higher education's predominantly one-size-fits-all model oftentimes falls short of students' needs and interests.

Yet, higher education's changing ecology, marked by transformational advances in technology and a concerted push for more robust college readiness standards in K-12, most notably the introduction of the Common Core State Standards, presents opportunities for new models. National Louis' gathering of education's most prominent voices will seek to address college's most pressing concerns.
