Conversation Starters

The Essential Skills for Being Human | NYT - David Brooks makes a strong argument for human connection and attention. “In any collection of humans, there are diminishers and there are illuminators.They know how to ask the right questions at the right times — so that they can see things, at least a bit, from another’s point of view. They shine the brightness of their care on people and make them feel bigger, respected, lit up.” I’m grateful that in my line of work, I get to support a lot of illuminators.

🌱 Who are the “illuminators”on your team? How do you build a strong team of illuminators? 

Data show strong return on investment for UNC graduates | Inside Higher Ed - “Graduates who complete an undergraduate degree at one of the UNC System’s universities have a median lifetime return on investment of $500,000 compared to North Carolinians without undergraduate degrees. And completing a degree resulted in upward economic mobility for nearly 90 percent of low-income students.” “By shining a light on post-college earnings and outcomes, other states and systems can make the case for deeper investments that help ensure every student has the opportunity to access postsecondary education and complete a credential.” Glad to see more traditional institutions take the time to collect data and report on the ROI of their programs!
