Hot Topics in Higher Education

Friday, March 3, 2023, 8:00 – 11:30 AM, UNC Greensboro, Elliott University Center (EUC), Cone Ballroom

The Division of Student Affairs at UNC Greensboro invites you to attend an impactful and timely professional development opportunity. On Friday, March 3rd, we will host Dr. Kevin Kruger, President and CEO of NASPA, as we explore post pandemic higher education. As higher education emerges from the pandemic, it is clear that many of the short-term impacts experienced during the pandemic are here to stay. These new factors and longer-term trends that were in place before the pandemic are resulting in a series of unprecedented challenges for higher education. But within these challenges are significant opportunities. Dr. Kruger will explore both potential barriers and new possibilities for the future of student affairs in this fast-paced interactive program.

This event is free of charge and will include a continental breakfast and an opportunity to debrief with colleagues following Dr. Kruger’s talk.
