  3. Lumina Foundation's CEO and President, Jamie Merisotis, ventured to Austin, Texas, where he conveniently happened upon a group of professional marketers. Now, these weren't just any sort of marketers, mind you. This group lives and breathes higher education... JAMIE'S FAVORITE!
  4. The marketers of higher education play an important role in the representation of their respective university. As the convention progressed, university marketing personnel gathered tips for successful marketing innovation.
  5. So, eventually it was Jamie's turn to take the podium.

  7. His Keynote connecting where Higher Ed's story and those who can help rewrite it should be intersecting.
  8. Lumina Foundation's mission centers around achieving Goal 2025. That is, to increase the proportion of Americans with high-quality college degrees, certificates, or other credentials to 60% by the year 2025.
  9. Currently, 40% attainment is all that we boast and, what's more, employers are dissatisfied with the skills of most graduates.
  10. In an age when...
  11. It is necessary we find time to build and invest in the value of human capital.
  12. Unfortunately, when we look at the current higher ed model...
  13. And forward movement is slow at best.
  14. A system shift must take place and focus must be reevaluated.
