The Changing Face of Higher Education


On Thursday, September 22, 2016, Universities at Shady Grove Executive Director Stewart Edelstein and UMBC student and USG Student Council President Faith Kamei joined an esteemed group of policymakers, educators and higher education experts at “The Changing Face of Higher Education,” a national forum sponsored by The Atlantic and Next America.

“USG provides the platform, the infrastructure [and] the connectivity to the school system, to the community college and to the business community, and a wide array of services that are provided by USG and each of our university partners,” Edelstein noted, when asked by panel moderator and Atlantic editor Alia Wong to sum up the value of the USG approach.

In light of an article The Atlantic published in May, “Bringing College to Students Who Can’t Leave Home,” Edelstein and Kamei were invited to share their insights on USG as a “case study” for the future of postsecondary education in the United States.

Other event participants included U.S. Representative and House Committee on Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline (R-MN); Hillary for America Surrogate and Education Policy Expert James Kvaal; Excelencia in Education President Sarita Brown; U.S. Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Education Policy Cheryl Oldham; President of Northern Virginia Community College Scott Ralls; and President of Paul Quinn College Michael Sorrell.
