Over the past few years, schools have strived to adapt and shift in response to the ever-changing environment and requirements of a 21st-century classroom. Higher education, in particular, has borne a significant share of these challenges. Students and administrators have grappled with the Herculean task of managing the COVID-19 pandemic, mental health concerns, and political challenges directed at college faculty and curriculum.
At the same moment, college and universities in Cleveland have experienced leadership changes. In September 2021, Dr. Laura Bloomberg began her tenure as President of Cleveland State University. Then in 2022, Tri-C selected Michael Baston as its next President. Each president brings a unique approach and perspective to their role.
Join the City Club as Presidents Baston and Bloomberg come together for a candid conversation with Dr. Ken Schneck, tenured Professor of Leadership in Higher Education at Baldwin Wallace on the future of higher education in Cleveland.
The livestream will be available beginning at 12:00pm. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
