Education Now | The State of College Admissions

What is it going to mean to “go to college” next fall? What should college admissions look like going forward? In the era of coronavirus, these are questions that have no clear answers at the moment, and parents, high school students, and college admissions teams are facing deep uncertainty.

In this episode, “The State of College Admissions,” Rick Weissbourd, leader of Turning the Tide – a national effort to rethink college admissions – and faculty director of HGSE’s Making Caring Common, will talk with HGSE alum, Lee Coffin (Ed.M. ’90), Vice Provost for Enrollment and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid at Dartmouth College and Rachelle Hernandez, Senior Vice Provost for Enrollment Management and Student Success at University of Texas Austin, to shed light on the answers to these and other questions.
