The quest begins at Georgia Tech with the Commission for Creating the Next in Education (CNE). Looking forward to the year 2040, the Commission has devised a strategic map for navigating the changing landscape of academia and inspiring the pioneers of innovation. The velocity of technology demands that these pioneers become persistent learners. This persistence requires access to lifelong hubs of sophisticated educational resources.
The overarching recommendation of the Commission is a proposal called the Georgia Tech
Commitment to a Lifetime Education — a promise to students to provide an educational
experience that is highly individualized and sustainable for a lifetime as personal and
professional needs change.
On the center of our strategic map, a model hub is being structured around five core initiatives.
