America is reexamining the role of higher education today. Changes in technology have profoundly altered the list of skills now most valued by prospective employers, causing traditional four-year universities and community colleges to recalibrate curriculums to address the evolving workforce. The global pandemic has also exacerbated a widening inequality with many lower-income students not able to continue their education after high school.
