Summit brings education leaders to RI


Warwick, RI--The Higher RI Summit brings together national, regional, and local leaders to focus on postsecondary education in Rhode Island. The event will take place on October 13, 2017 at the Community College of Rhode Island, Knight Campus, 400 East Ave, Warwick, RI 02886.

Rhode Island’s goal of 70% of Rhode Islanders with a postsecondary degree or certificate by 2025 requires commitment by education leaders, business owners, lawmakers, community members, students and many others. Grant sponsored by Lumina Strategy Labs, the Higher RI Summit is an opportunity to gather the best national, regional, and local thinkers to inform the development of the attainment action plan. The core of the summit will comprise four discussion panels on equity, affordability, workforce innovation, and strengthening partnerships.
