[Webinar] The Dilemma of Postsecondary Capital – Insights from Eduventures’ Adult Prospect Research Report

Date: Thursday, March 26, 2020
Time: 
2PM ET/1PM CT
Duration: 60 Minutes

Eduventures’ Adult Prospect Research Report suggests that the attainment of postsecondary credentials is far less of an accelerator of social and economic mobility than previously assumed. Postsecondary education has long been thought of as an engine of career advancement and upward social mobility. Much of this narrative is true: increased earnings and expanded job opportunities are often the result of postsecondary education. This latest research reveals that the challenge may be about a student’s access to postsecondary capital: an accumulation of economic capacity, personal confidence, and academic competence.

Eduventures® Principal Analyst Howard Lurie will explore how postsecondary capital affects adult learner decision making about whether to continue their education, and the implications these trends may have for postsecondary institutions.
