Registration now open for the CAEL 2022 Conference in Chicago, IL. Join us!

Hear from CAEL’s new president, Earl Buford, as he presents on an upcoming Presidents Roundtable panel discussion webinar and shares how Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) can help unlock access to postsecondary education for all adult learners.

Although the pandemic resulted in a steep decline in undergraduate enrollment in this country, the latest research shows that demand for postsecondary education and training remains strong nationwide.

As the interest is there, what can postsecondary education do to engage these learners, support their enrollment, and help them complete their programs of study?

The recently released Powering Purpose report from Strada Education Network examined trends at community colleges and identified proven, equitable solutions that help move the needle for all adult learners navigating the education-to-career journey.

At this Presidents Roundtable, postsecondary education leaders and the presidents of CAEL and Inside Track will share their work to dismantle systemic and institutional barriers and implement solutions that effectively support today’s students.


Janet Salm, Managing Director of Research, Strada Education Network will moderate this roundtable discussion featuring: 

Dr. Annette Parker, President of South Central College

Dr. Scott Ralls, President of Wake Technical Community College 

Ruth Bauer White, President of InsideTrack

Earl Buford, President of The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL)
