Winter 2023 - Volume 26, Issue 3

From the Editor

Topping my holiday wishlist is for top administrators to understand students aren’t going back. Traditional dorm life (and the money that comes with it) is old-age thinking. There are so many who lack a college education that we must work together to grow the pie bigger rather than fight over what exists. In 2023, the relevance of high-quality online learning options for both traditional and non-traditional students is an argument that should not have to be made. If we are truly putting students first, then we focus on accessibility, affordability, and eliminating duplication.

Let’s dive into this and so much more at the 2024 Distance Learning Administration Conference in Jekyll Island next July. The Call for Proposals is underway now. I can’t wait to see you there!

Peace to all
