With the Carolinas’ economic recovery now well underway, much of the region’s education policy focus has turned to workforce development. High Point University President Nido Qubein is keenly aware of the rush to retrain the unemployed and underemployed, but he cautions against dismissing liberal arts institutions as an important player in addressing the skills gap. On this program, Qubein discusses the future of bricks and mortar campuses and his approach to inspiring students. John Gessaman of the Carolinas Gateway Partnership and Ben Haskew of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce join the conversation.
