Ensuring Higher Ed Affordability with Florida A&M, Lorain County CC & Butler University

In the last of our three-part series exploring how technology serves as the foundation for resiliency in higher education, we brought together leaders from three higher education institutions and one implementation partner to discuss the financial aid office of the future. The conversation between leaders from Butler, Lorain County Community College, and Florida A&M reflected not only the current reality of their institutions’ financial aid processes and procedures, but addressed their ambitions and aspirations as well: What does the structure of a more resilient, agile financial aid office entail? How must financial aid be transformed in order to serve a generation disrupted by pandemic and recession? How can institutions address the challenge of moving from manual to largely automated financial aid processes? And what can schools, vendors, and policymakers do to make financial aid more equitable?
