233: Human Development is Economic Development - with Lynn Mulherin, Commissioner, Florida Commission for Independent Education

233: Human Development is Economic Development - with Lynn Mulherin, Commissioner, Florida Commission for Independent Education

Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast!  In this episode, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we welcome Lynn Mulherin, Commissioner, Florida Commission for Independent Education!

Lynn talks to us about why online education is here to stay.  Like so many other leaders in the space, she makes a distinction between online and remote learning - and how the pandemic pushed (not pulled) institutions to the online competitive market. Understanding the adult market is critical, their motivations are different and it's critical that higher ed leaders define what they mean by "student" when they are discussing consumers.  Lynn says it's time to move from disruption to transformation - the trends are accessibility, affordability, and scalability!  Students will still benefit by moving up the learning ladder!

Lynn Mulherin leverages the power of technology and teams to advocate for student access, equity and education evolution. Her career includes twenty years as an executive at University of Phoenix and fifteen concurrent years as a commissioner for the Florida Commission for Independent Education. Her particular focus has been on first-generation adult college students. Lynn also created and launched a platform designed to virtually celebrate graduations and other life milestones at sharepearlsofwisdom.com.
