The Education Writers Association will hold its 2019 fall Higher Education Seminar September 23-24 on the theme of “Demographics, Politics, and Technology: The Forces Reshaping Higher Education.”

Held on the campus of the University of Michigan, this journalist-only intensive training event will offer two days of high-impact learning opportunities, including sessions on timely topics in higher education and practical advice for covering them effectively.

This year’s seminar will examine how higher education institutions are adjusting to new technologies, a reduction in the number of “traditional” college students, and a political environment marked by anti-intellectualism and polarization.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Susan Dynarski, a University of Michigan economist who spearheaded a successful experiment that increased the number of low-income students at the flagship school.
  • Scott Jaschik, editor of Inside Higher Ed, who will share his top 10 story ideas for higher education reporters.
  • Josh Mitchell, a veteran Wall Street Journal reporter who is writing a book on student loans. 

Space is limited, so reserve your seat as soon as possible!
