At one time or another, you've probably considered leaving higher ed to work in another sector. (And if you haven't, you undoubtedly have one or more direct reports or colleagues who have.) Maybe it's the low pay or scarce resources, maybe it's for a change of pace, maybe it's the politics -- or maybe it's the private sector's promise of a shorter sales cycle, a diverse target or more dynamic new-product development. This visually oriented poster session will air out both "push" and "pull" factors like these, as well as structural issues like the student-debt bubble, tenure, competition and decentralization. It'll take a look some of higher ed's more fearsome boogeymen straight in the eye. For some of us (myself included), higher ed's downside might turn out to be heavy — but if the higher-ed mission is for you, these problems are among the most exciting challenges you'll be called to tackle. Let's talk about them!
