The big news out of this month’s 2014 annual Nine Shift seminar for senior decision makers in community colleges is that attendees are reporting the predicted Nine Shift changes are now happening.
As a result, our NineShift work will begin to transition from explaining ‘why’ the shifts should happen to ‘how’ to make the shifts happen.
Here’s some of the historic firsts reported by participants at this month’s Nine Shift seminar.
-College recognizes changing suburban demographics.
-Gen Y ‘assumes’ telework
-College seeks light rail stop for campus
-First Gen X college leadership
-Too many buildings
President Ryan Purdy of Mid-Plains Community College in North Platte, Nebraska, noted that virtually his entire cabinet is now Gen X.
