PBJ How Oregon Works: Higher education faces challenges ahead


For the education portion of Portland Business Journal’s How Oregon Works series, Stoel Rives attorneys Penny Serrurier and Wally Van Valkenburg contributed an article titled “Higher education faces challenges ahead,” published December 3, 2018. In the article, the authors look at the impact technology and globalization will increasingly have on higher education with regard to its funding and perceived value, and how higher education institutions can best deliver what they promise to their students.

Serrurier and Van Valkenburg conclude: “As with every industry, voices will argue that the new models will never supplant the existing ones. While no one can predict the future, higher education leaders would do well to reflect back on retailers who believed consumers would always prefer an in-store experience over shopping online. Times change, and the successful competitors will be those who get ahead of the curve.”
