The NH Alliance for College and Career Readiness will host a Higher Education Roundtable on Wednesday, May 19, at 1 p.m. to provide important information on state, regional, and national trends in higher education, particularly around workforce development, access, and institutional consolidations. The roundtable aims to inform the dialogue around the proposed merger of the University System of New Hampshire and the Community College System of NH. The Alliance has purposefully invited new voices to this event in an effort to expand the dialogue and engage with guests not directly involved with the proposed merger of NH’s two systems.
Speakers for the event include:
- Michael Turmelle, Director of Education and Career Initiatives, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation
- Brian Prescott, Vice President, National Center For Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS)
- Joyce Judy, President, Community College of Vermont
The panel will be moderated by Nicole Heimarck, the Executive Director of the NH Alliance for College and Career Readiness.
This event is open to the public and will be held virtually via Zoom. Registration is free, but required. Register via Zoom: https://bit.ly/NHhigheredroundtable.
