Higher education learners look very different than they did decades ago, with fewer traditional aged high school graduates and more older adults balancing work and family with their education. While higher education can provide a path to better paying jobs and career options, traditional program designs are mismatched with today’s learner needs.
The Center for Higher Education Policy and Practice (CHEPP) at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) is on a mission to show how centering the needs of today’s learners can help higher education realize its full potential as a pathway to opportunity for everyone.
With 3,000 in-person students in Manchester, New Hampshire and more than 170,000 online learners enrolled across the United States, SNHU has a “campus” in every state with learners from every background. These students represent the future of higher education.
