Across the state and country, student demographics, the knowledge and skills employers desire, and the infrastructure students need to complete a credential are rapidly changing. At the same time, postsecondary education and training programs are facing both economic pressure and questions of purpose while struggling to maintain enrollments.

The Today’s Students Summit will convene stakeholders from across the state and sectors to transform the delivery of postsecondary education and training in Vermont to better serve Vermont’s students, employers, communities and economy.

Leaders from Pk-12 education, postsecondary education and training, business, government, nonprofits, and philanthropy are invited to attend.

Attendees will:

  • Hear from national and local leaders about trends in postsecondary education and training;
  • Learn about the shifting demographic makeup of Vermont’s current and potential students;
  • Discover innovative approaches and funding opportunities for bridging the gap between traditional postsecondary education and the evolving needs of students, employers, and communities;
  • Participate in facilitated discussions with subject matter experts to identify which opportunities for innovation will have the greatest impact, and action steps for implementation.

Participants will walk away informed by relevant data on Vermont’s students, communities, and economy, equipped with new strategies for enacting change, and connected with a network of subject matter experts, potential partners, and funders.
