Digging Deeper: Making Education Accessible

It’s impossible to ignore the national discussion on the accessibility of a higher education. Student debt and the cost of education are increasing in response to a variety of issues, including the fact that, in nearly every state, funding of public universities has declined substantially. Penn State is working to transform its vision of access education with new strategies.

On this episode of “Higher Education in Focus,” Barron and Satalia talk to Renata S. Engel, associate vice provost for Online Programs, and David Christiansen, associate vice president for Commonwealth Campuses and senior dean for academic programs, about transforming education and access.
