#4 - A different perspective on the future of Education

An interview with Leif Anderson, Vice President & Chief Strategy Officer at Augsburg University

My guest on this week’s podcast is Leif Anderson, Vice President & Chief Strategy Officer at Augsburg University

He leads institutional planning and effectiveness at Augsburg University in order to realize the college’s vision through the implementation of the Augsburg2019 strategic plan.

The University is based in the heart of Minneapolis and has built a strong academic reputation in the liberal arts and professional studies since 1869. It offers undergraduate and graduate degrees to more than 3,500 diverse students and educates them to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders.

During this interview, we’ll specifically focus on the vision that’s been set out by Augsburg University president Paul Pribbenow. He challenges higher education to change its focus from students being “college ready,” to institutions being “student ready.” At the same time, Pribbenow is bringing new clarity to Augsburg’s value proposition – what he calls a “three dimensional” education.

In listening to this podcast, you will learn 3 things:

  1. how these important concepts are being equipped at Augsburg
  2. What’s driving this change
  3. How technology can help Universities to succeed
