Dear partners and innovators, 

The Lab team has been traveling across the country to learn and celebrate in person with our partners during this busy conference season.

Members of our Colorado cohort from the Community College Growth Engine Fund (pictured) met in Denver to work on micro-pathways and experienced a Lab Gallery Walk for the first time. The group was also introduced to the powerful Learner Engagement Framework and talked about storytelling to lead change. We celebrated with cake ... and copies of Southern New Hampshire University President Paul LeBlanc's latest book, "Broken."

Many thanks to our Colorado partners for making the time to connect ... and to Lab Education Designer Rachel Kahn for organizing!

Can higher education really be redesigned to connect learners and the workforce?
Oct. 14, 2022

In this excellent Q&A with Higher Ed Dive, Lab President + CEO Bill Hughes talks about new majority learners, the Data Collaborative, and how the Lab improves the capacity to change. 

"One of the things people say to us, regardless of the type of project they’re doing, is 'Thank God you’re here. You’re actually making space for us to make the change. You’re giving us permission to do it.'"  Read more ...
