February 25, 2019, @ 9:34 AM
Attendees to the Tomorrow’s Student: Generation Z event gather at Moravian College for the workshop portion of the first session of the Facing Higher Education’s Future series.

As a continuation of the Facing Higher Education’s Future year-long learning series, LVAIC is offering Demography in Higher Education on Friday, April 12, 2019 at Lafayette College.

This topic in the series highlights the impending demographic changes to the higher education industry.This presentation and workshop will allow explore shifting dynamics and to promote understanding of the impact of this changing higher education environment. This event features keynote speaker and author of Demographics and the Demand for Higher Education, Nathan Grawe, PhD.

Nathan is a labor economist with particular interests in how family background–from family income to number of siblings–shapes educational and employment outcomes. Many of his works study whether access to financial resources significantly limit these important measures of success. Nathan’s most recent publication, Demographics and The Demand for Higher Education(Johns Hopkins University Press, 2018) examines how recent demographic shifts are likely to affect demand for higher education and explores how colleges and policymakers may respond to meet institutional and national goals. In addition to studying how higher education is preparing for demograhpic change, in other recent work Nathan examines how the taxes implicit in financial aid formulas alter female labor force participation.

Nathan has participated in the leadership of Carleton’s Quantitative Inquiry, Reasoning, and Knowledge (QuIRK) initiative and has shared what Carleton has learned through this initiative through invited talks and led professional development workshops at dozens of colleges and universities across the US and Canada.

The topics explored will include the following:

  • Access and Affordability – Late Spring 2019
  • Institutional Models & Decision-Making – August 2019
  • External Constituents and Accountability – Mid-Fall 2019
  • Bringing it Together and Moving Forward – December 2019
