Webinar: Education Benefits to Enrollment Gap
A webinar on understanding why working adults with education benefits don't enroll in university and learning programs.

There are roughly 60 million working adults eligible for tuition assistance. Unfortunately, fewer than 10% of these employees use these benefits. We call this the “working adult to college enrollment gap.”

There are several reasons for this gap, but the core reason is that there are too many obstacles along the journey that companies and universities and Learning partners have put in place.

In this webinar, we uncover the primary barriers that working adult students face, focusing on millions that have tuition benefits from their companies, and offer solutions to help universities, companies and learning programs address this issue together.

Who is this webinar for?
-University leaders interested in learning how to increase their number of working adult students and build programs that meet the unique needs of working adults
-Learning program interested in building relationships with corporate partners and increase student enrollment
-Companies interested in creating programs to retain the right talent and enhance their brand

This webinar will be moderated by Terah Crews, Vice President of Learning Solutions at Guild Education, and feature
- Michael Horn, award-winning author and co-founder of the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation
- Craig Wilson, Vice Provost of Online and Distance Education at The University of Arizona
