WHAT: Virtual panel discussing the state of higher education policy in Louisiana.

WHEN: Friday, Aug. 28, 2020

10:00 a.m.


WHY: A recent survey from the American Council on Education showed that 86 percent of college presidents put fall or

summer enrollment numbers at the top of their most pressing issues in the face of COVID-19. As the landscape of

higher education continues to shift, Ellevate webinar panelists will discuss challenges colleges and universities face

amid the COVID-19 pandemic and how they are enhancing the game of online instruction. They will also discuss the

in-state struggle over resources from competing interests and how it impacts higher education, as well as the role of

community colleges and dual enrollment opportunities for students across Louisiana.

HOW: Media are invited to attend the webinar. If you’re interested in an interview with an Ellevate Louisiana or any of the

panelists, please contact Branda Johnson at or 617.435.7014.
