Summer Worship Service
September 2, 2018
10:30 am in the Parish Hall
Cathy Livingston presiding

Dr. Livingston will share insights from her current consulting practice with higher education institutions to help them increase their effectiveness in supporting today’s students in achieving their educational goals.  The profiles of today’s college students reflect significant changes in the demographics of who is attending college:  More than 50% of students are first in their families to attend college and are from low-to-moderate income families, and over 40% of the students are from communities of color and are 24 years of age or older.  Will higher education institutions be able to embrace these changes as social justice opportunities to educate this new cohort of participants?
