Higher education is no longer just four years at ol’ State U. It's also adult education, skills training and workforce development. It's also more-than-high-school-less-than-college to fill in-demand, good-paying "middle-skill jobs." How does Colorado adapt to and meet the needs of our changing demographics? How do we keep up with the technological changes in the way we teach and learn, such as with online colleges? How does Colorado adapt to the changing nature of the workplace and workforce? What are new approaches and new thinking on financing higher education?

City Club of Denver members and guests will learn some of the possible answers to these questions from Wade Buchanan, President of the Bell Policy Center.
