Looking Beyond the Enrollment Cliff with Professor Nathan Grawe
Joining Howard Teibel today in conversation is Dr. Nathan Grawe, distinguished teaching professor of the social sciences at Carleton college, where he has served on the faculty since 1999. You might have seen Nathan’s work as it relates to the framing of the enrollment cliff, something that’s been exacerbated and accelerated in this last year.
As we find ourselves beginning to emerge out of lockdowns in our lives — and for many of us on our campuses — the big question is how will we navigate back to what Georgia Tech is framing as a return to better?
This conversation with Nathan covers many important topics, including his most recent analysis of enrollment trends, issues of shared governance, and how we need to think about work as we come out of this pandemic.
Reach out to us at Teibel education if we can help you build an intentional mindset and process to navigate your challenges over this next year.
