Tipping Point for Education

This fall, as students go back to school – in-person and online – colleges and universities are facing a new set of challenges. Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, what is the future of higher education in Germany and the United States? On October 6, the ACG and 1014 hosted a discussion with German and American educators and students to learn about how colleges and universities adapt – with possibly long-lasting changes that will shape higher education for years to come. Speakers include Carson Crochet, a Davidson College Junior, who works on the College Crisis Initiative; Dr. Chris Marsicano, Assistant Professor of the Practice in Educational Studies, Davidson College; and Dr. Uta G. Ploiger, Dean, College of Social Sciences and Humanities; Professor of History, Northeastern University.
