213: Empowering Learners to Create Better Futures - with Dr. Julie Wollman, President, Widener University

Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast! This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #71. In this episode, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we welcome Dr. Julie Wollman, President of Widener University.  Julie talks with Joe about how the mission at Widener is to empower their learning community to create better futures.  This includes the recognition that "soft" skills are anything but soft.  They are critical or POWER skills.  Students need to be ready for their many careers by becoming tenacious.  Students also want different things - Julie touches on the key marketing components of higher education including changing expectations, speed, and reducing friction.  Listen to her talk about why traditional strategic planning needs to be tossed away!  Finally, hear about The Common Ground Project!
