Virginia schools take on cybersecurity workforce development

Online college enrollment is growing

Online higher education institutions continue to see enrollment gains during the coronavirus pandemic, rising another 2.2% in the spring 2021 semester, the National Student Clearinghouse said Thursday, with part-time students powering the increase.

While only 35% reported collecting “a great deal or a lot” of data on food security, about 75% said they were interested in having better data on that topic. A similar gap was found when provosts were interviewed about access to Wi-Fi. Emily has the details.
