SCORE and the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, will release our co-produced digital report examining the challenges facing higher education students and institutions in the current economy during a July webinar.

Our webinar will give an overview of the findings in Driving Forward: Ensuring Postsecondary Students Earn Credentials In A Changing Economy. The online report examines lessons learned from previous recessions, explores the impact of the COVID-19 recession on postsecondary education and the workforce, and charts a path forward for Tennessee in the months and years ahead.
