Forward: Your 2023 Planning Guide
Higher ed leaders must build and support a proactive orientation today to help our institutions meet the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow. Equipped with information about the latest issues and trends in higher education, we can make plans and take actions not only for new modalities but also for the unknown future emerging from the powerful digital and cultural transformations surrounding us.
