The Urban Institute hosted a two-day workshop in June 2023 to reimagine the future of postsecondary education so everyone can access a high-quality and affordable education that prepares them for good jobs. Workshop participants included representatives from education, government, research, philanthropy, and business. Together they worked to generate ideas for imagining a more equitable future through postsecondary education, including how to support learners at all points on their education journey through two-generation strategies, robust navigation, effective use of technology, development of a skills infrastructure, and cross-cutting investments to close racial wealth gaps.
