Higher Education

Co-Chaired by Dr. Paula Rooney, President of Dean College, and Tim Leshan, Vice President at Northeastern University, The New England Council’s Higher Education Committee encompasses a broad spectrum of higher education advocates in the region. From large private universities to small community colleges, and from region-wide policy boards to career development centers serving individual cities, The New England Council brings together members from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives. In 2019, the Higher Education Committee focused on issues affecting education and workforce development, including STEM education and its role in bolstering an economically competitive workforce, increased access to higher education, and the development of our region’s talent pipeline through research, innovation, and collaboration.

For more information about the Higher Education committee and priorities, please contact Taylor Pichette.
