Thought Leaders Report 2020: Preparing for the Student of 2024 [PDF]
Students entering higher education in the next decade will be the most diverse incoming class in higher education history—and the vanguard of an increasingly diverse generation. They will have been raised with technology from birth and will consider online interaction as natural as breathing. They will be alert to the importance of mental health and wellness, both in themselves and in their peers. They will have low tolerance for slow administrative processes. They will expect their professors to teach in engaging, interactive ways and make smart use of technology. They will expect a lot of them¬selves. They will expect a lot of their institutions. They will know what they are paying for their education, and they will demand every penny’s worth. Is today’s campus ready for these students? The answer: Yes—and no. Higher education is moving in the right direction, but it faces unprecedented demands and challenges. We are only now beginning to understand that the old normal is never coming back. We must find ways to adapt to a new normal and a new set of expectations from our future students.

Thought Leaders Report 2019: Innovation in an Age of Disruption [PDF]
How do you think outside the box? In other words, how do you approach thinking differently about the world around you and your institutional and organizational challenges? More importantly, how do you go beyond just thinking differently to actually seeing things differently?
This question is what drove the entire 2019 APPA Thought Leaders symposium as they explored the mechanics of innovation. They drew on the experience of experts in innovation and entrepreneurship and discussed ways to protect experimentation and creativity from institutional forces dedicated to the status quo. They practiced developing innovative strategies for addressing the challenges facing higher education. And they learned that creativity must be fostered and encouraged within an institution, by modeling the entrepreneurial mindset to instill a curiosity to innovate.
