A Message from President Scott Pulsipher
President Pulsipher's Focus Areas
There are many areas in higher education that President Pulsipher is particularly passionate about. A few of those areas include:
Closing the Digital Divide
The world of learning and work is now online, and it's here to stay. Pulsipher believe that internet access is a necessity, not a luxury, and is committed to a future in which every learner has the digital skills, device access, and connectivity needed to thrive in a technology-enabled future.
Traditionally, higher education has been campus-based and centered on the needs and priorities of the institution. Pulsipher believes that the student should be at the center of everything we do and that the future of higher education is personalized to the needs of each individual student.
History and tradition have value, but they shouldn’t constrain our approach to solving the real problems that individuals face in accessing and thriving in higher education. Pulsipher takes a tech-first, solution-oriented, innovation-driven approach in order to build what students need.
