“Today’s learners have drastically changed and have characteristics that require a lot more agility as they are coming from first generation households, are working full or part time, have dependents at home, and many will transfer to multiple institutions across their educational experience. Nearly 75% of the current undergraduate population exhibit some of these characteristics.”
