Quota Speaker Series Presents Lane Glenn, President of NECC
Northern Essex Community College President Lane Glenn will be the guest speaker at a Quota International of Andover presentation at Andover Memorial Hall Library, 2 North Main St., Andover, MA, on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 7 p.m.
Free and open to the public, Glenn’s presentation is titled “The Top 10 Trends in Higher Education: How Do We Prepare Students for Careers and Life?”
By the year 2018, 68 percent of Massachusetts’ jobs will require postsecondary education. Today, only 50 percent of the state’s 3.5 million working-age adults hold at least a two-year degree.
In this presentation, Northern Essex Community College President Lane Glenn will share his ideas on how we can close this gap and provide more local residents with a college education. He will discuss ways to control the spiraling cost of college and rising student debt; how higher education can partner with employers to be sure students graduate with marketable skills; the different types of colleges from public to private non-profits and for-profits; and other trends in higher education.
This is the third year that Quota of Andover hosts a free guest speaker open to the public. Quota International of Andover is a non-profit [501C (3)] organization whose focus is to provide financial support, time and resources to help meet the needs of disadvantaged women and children and to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing in the Merrimack Valley.
