The Launch of the Long Game

May 9, 2023

Policy Fellow Linda Stamato argues that colleges and universities need to shift their focus from short-term goals for their graduates. This means that instead of simply providing students with the skills they need to get their first job, institutions should also focus on helping them build the foundational skills and networks that will serve them throughout their careers. To do this, colleges and universities should invest in career services, alumni networks, and experiential learning opportunities that go beyond traditional internships. By helping students build the skills and networks they need to succeed in the long-term, institutions can create more loyal alumni and better prepare their graduates for the rapidly changing job market.
