Webster In the News: President Stroble on Webster Innovations and Free Speech
The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) singled out Webster University for its status as a pioneer and innovator in the areas of online education and for adding military and international locations. Online students can earn 30 graduate degrees, 22 certificates, and eight undergrad degrees, or just take a class or two online as needed. Dr. Stroble reiterated the University’s informal mission of meeting unmet needs – and having the flexibility to do so.
In addition, in a recent American Council on Education (ACE) blog article, President Stroble addressed the need and importance of linking free speech and inclusion together in the realm of education. “[Universities provide] models of how to listen to voices that are overlooked in the traditional media, widening the scope of conversations, and rediscovering the lost arts of compromise and courtesy.”
