Webinar: First Things First: Helping Adult Learners Make Better College Decisions


Adults without a college degree are increasingly returning to school. Yet our research shows that too many are making decisions about the school or program they will attend without the information they need to choose wisely. To help adult students have the best possible chance for success in school and the workforce, education leaders and policymakers must do a better job connecting students with informational resources and demonstrating their value. In this webinar, we discuss our research on adult prospective students and explore the main concerns and priorities of these prospective students when it comes to choosing a program and a school and why existing resources and information are failing to reach them. How education leaders can better engage these adults and improve their chances for success.
