Abstract:
In many countries, "traditional" students will soon be a numerical minority on campus. The demands of the knowledge society as well as social and demographic shifts continue to have far-reaching effects on the composition of the student body with more and more entrants (or re-entrants) well past the age of eighteen to twenty-four. In order to serve an increasingly broad and diverse spectrum of the population, higher education institutions will have to adjust their academic programs and organizational structures and become more "permeable." This session will convene practitioners and policy-makers from around the world to explore the trends in shifting student populations, analyze policies and models to respond to these trends, and evaluate the challenges and opportunities that higher education faces in the light of this development.
