Lingenfelter, who is president emeritus of State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO), introduced the overarching themes and moderated the session. Seymour, who is the assistant vice president for education attainment and innovation for the American Council on Education, addressed national studies and policy issues. Derwin talked about the “real life” example of CBE at Brandman University. More than 75 people attended the session.
