Our Weekly Resources

Maya Angelou once said, “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” Every week, we do what we can to stay as updated and informed on the latest happenings relevant to higher learning, and our global society, available. There is incredible thought leadership happening, well, at all times, and leading academics and innovators continue to raise the bar for what’s next. The very root of innovation is not being comfortable with being complacent, which involves a consistent thirst for knowledge and commitment to receiving and sharing it. Here are just a few pieces we read this week and found valuable. We hope you do too! Happy learning…
