Mike Abbiattie, WCET Executive Director“My greatest hope is that we restate and refine our mission in higher education to be much more focused on student outcomes and less focused on where we’re going to find the next dollar. Failure to do so will mean that the big campuses get bigger, the small campuses get smaller, and diversity at every level will be less instead of more.” – WCET Executive Director Mike Abbiatti in "Future Forward: The Next Twenty Years of Higher Education,” a white paper by educational technology firm Blackboard.
