College Connections

Faced with a nationwide decline in the number of students enrolling in college, Presbyterian College President Dr. Claude Lilly¬†believes institutions of higher learning must work together to keep young people engaged in education while matching the needs of the region’s employers. On this program, Lilly describes the role his college plays in connecting students to their community, supplying an educational¬†foundation for advanced degrees, why some high school students should choose a path which does not involve a four-year degree. Joining the discussion are Dr. Bill Anderson of MeckEd and Mary Lynne Calhoun, Dean of the College of Education at UNC Charlotte.
