“Let’s Talk” Community Forum Series

Posted on

The“Let’s Talk” community forum series is aimed at addressing barriers to higher education. Each one of the three forums focuses on different issues – from economic barriers and capacity building to future employment prospects. The forums are designed to give members of the community and higher education professionals the opportunity to engage in open dialogue.
