ACE Engage Webinar to Explore Economic Trends in Higher Education
June 15, 2020

​In the face of a coronavirus-induced recession, how will the broader national economic outlook affect higher education institutions and students? This is the question to be explored by the ACE Engage® plenary webinar “Economic Trends in Higher Education” taking place June 22 at 1 p.m. EDT.

The webinar will feature ACE President Ted Mitchell; Georgia State University President Mark P. Becker; and Roger W. Ferguson Jr., president and CEO of TIAA, which is generously supporting the event.

Ted Mitchell became president of ACE on Sept. 1, 2017. Other career highlights include serving as president of Occidental College from 1999–2005 and as U.S. under secretary of education from 2014 until January 2017, overseeing postsecondary education policies and programs.

Mark Becker began his tenure as Georgia State University’s seventh president in January 2009. Prior to joining the ranks of higher education leadership, Becker, who is trained as a statistician, had a distinguished career in biostatistics and public health sciences. He serves on ACE’s Board of Directors and is the immediate past chair.

Roger Ferguson is the former vice chairman of the Board of Governors of the U.S. Federal Reserve System. As the only governor in Washington, D.C. on 9/11, he led the Fed’s initial response to the terrorist attacks, taking actions that kept the U.S. financial system functioning while reassuring the global financial community that the U.S. economy would not be paralyzed.
