New York Institute of Technology’s community of doers, makers, healers and innovators is honoured to partner with Times Higher Education to host the US Student Success Forum in 2019. We welcome our peers and partners to this pivotal annual event and to the important conversations regarding best practices and innovative ideas that will positively impact the future of higher education and our students’ success. And because no conversation about higher education is complete without data, we also look forward to the 2019 Wall Street Journal/THE College Rankings that will be unveiled on the eve of the forum.
As a “polytechnic++” offering programmes in multiple disciplines at two campuses in the heart of New York’s tech corridor, New York Institute of Technology is uniquely situated and suited to “empower student success in the STEM disciplines”, the theme of this year’s forum. We will host some of the greatest minds and most accomplished leaders in higher education as they share their successes and discuss the critical need for improving and accelerating STEM education to address our country’s workforce demands and shortages. Important topics that we will focus on during the day will include: enabling students and faculty to have a growth mindset in regard to the STEM disciplines; attracting women and under-represented minorities to STEM fields; addressing the needs of our Gen Z students; and assessing the role that liberal arts can and should play in STEM education.
Once again, we welcome the THE US Student Success Forum to New York, and to New York Institute of Technology, where we hope you will join us to reinvent the future.
