Degrees of Uncertainty

Paul Davenport Theatre, Talbot College

Western Homecoming 2014 - Drive2

Degrees are still worth the investment. Despite mounds of data countering their claims, critics of a university education have grown louder – and bolder – as recent graduates face an increasingly complex job market.  But universities are not shying away from the debate.

From interdisciplinary environments and experiential learning to new ideas and even newer technologies in the classroom, join Paul Kennedy from CBC’s ideas as he leads a panel of Western faculty, staff and alumni in discussing how postsecondary educators are combating the criticism, and what innovations are guaranteeing the value of a university degree in tomorrow’s world. Western's new Alumni Career Coach will also be on hand to answer your questions and let you know how you can be involved with our new Alumni Career Management initiative.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m.

Please register online by Monday, September 15, 2014.

There is always so much to do when you come home! For a full list of Homecoming 2014 activities, please visit the Events section of this website.

Contact Western Alumni if you require information in an alternate format, or if any other arrangements can make this event accessible to you.
