  • 5 Things People Want from Higher Education, According to Northeastern

    BostInno - 01/06/2013

    Northeastern’s recent national Innovation in Higher Education opinion poll revealed what academia has known, yet feared, for years: the higher education system needs to change, and it needs to change now.

    When the survey was first released, Northeastern President Joseph Aoun told the community:

    In overwhelming numbers, [respondents] are telling us that the system of today will not meet the challenges of tomorrow. These findings are a wake-up call for those of us in higher education to renew the social compact we have always had with Americans by innovating across multiple dimensions.

    Yet, what changes does Northeastern think need to be made? The University created an infographic highlighting the “5 Things People Want from Higher Education.” Several suggestions sound similar to the New Year’s resolutions we wish every college would make in 2013, like provide more real-world skills and incorporate some level of online learning.
