As part of the celebratory events for the inauguration of Merodie A. Hancock, the second webinar in a three-part series, “Three Voices That Shape Our Vision,” takes place from 2-3 p.m., Thursday, March 13.

The topic of the webinar is the quote from Ernest L. Boyer Sr., “Education is a seamless web: one level of learning relates to every other.”

James W. Hall, founding president of SUNY Empire State College, will explore how this idea shapes the vision for nontraditional higher education.

In case you missed the first of the three inauguration webinars by Saleem Badat, newly appointed program director of the International Higher Education and Strategic Projects for The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and former vice chancellor at Rhodes University, South Africa.

Badat discussed a quote by Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” which also is relevant to the inauguration theme of re-emergence.
