Bennett College President Rosalind Fuse-Hall delivered the keynote address for the luncheon dispelling the notion that higher education is no longer the key to opportunity.
"Americans are being constantly told that we are weighing students down with excessive debt, they can't graduate timely, and we don't really need that many people that are well educated -- we just need a few people with a few certifications to do certain things. We know that this is not the case," said Fuse-Hall
." She also discussed the importance of student enrollment, fiscal stability, fundraising, budgeting, leveraging facilities, and having a better understanding of the dynamics of governing boards.
