Tammy says that “higher education must be radically re-imagined. Colleges are working feverously to assist students in learning how to adjust to a world where their skills are needed more than ever. We must assist our students by continuing to provide them with the access they need to programs that help them upskill or retrain. Colleges need to listen to students, employers, and our communities”.
