The deans of these three institutions came together recently for the first time to meet one another and share learnings. The landscape of higher education is changing quickly, and the legacy grants help institutions adapt. Through conversations about how the grant fits into their universities, the participants were able to gain wider perspectives on trends in higher education, learn about innovative programs and discuss the path forward. These new lines of communication will support future knowledge sharing and collaboration.
Each school shared how the legacy grant has been a catalyst for innovation by helping launch a new program, enhancing an existing approach or responding to a compelling challenge. The deans spent time discussing GHR’s goals and strategies, common challenges the institutions face and the role of the legacy grant in overcoming these challenges. GHR also asked the universities for feedback on a new dashboard of indicators for measuring success, which will be used as GHR fine-tunes how to best carry out the legacy of GHR's founders.
