What makes a higher ed institution an Innovator? At Apogee, we believe our analysis of 491 college and university strategic plans shows that schools that had strong online learning initiatives prior to the pandemic are Innovators that are more resilient to the turmoil caused by the pandemic and more prepared for the blended learning future. Check out our new infographic on these Innovators and learn how you can register for a limited time to receive a personalized walk-through of our interactive report, The State of Higher Ed Strategic Planning.

The goal: to better understand what schools, both big and small, reflected as strategic priorities in a pre-pandemic world. We’re thrilled to announce the launch of an interactive report detailing the findings of this one-of-a-kind research.
