Reimagining Post-Secondary Possibilities for Adults Over 50


Given the advances in science and technology that will allow adults to live and work longer, universities must create (or recreate) educational opportunities aligned and possibilities for adults over 50 years of age, particularly individuals from the military, nontraditional, and working (MNW) students from underrepresented groups. This presentation focuses on creating new opportunities for MNW from a S-JEDI (social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion) perspective.

As adults reach the age of 50 and beyond, many find themselves contemplating new possibilities and opportunities. One avenue that is often overlooked is post-secondary education. While it may seem unconventional or even unnecessary for adults in this age group to pursue further education, there are several reasons why it is important.
