ODU Leaders Write Op-Ed for Richmond Times-Dispatch on Social Mobility
June 11, 2019
Old Dominion University President John R. Broderick and Ellen Neufeldt, Vice President for Student Engagement and Enrollment Services, highlighted key takeaways from the University's second annual social mobility symposium on June 4 and 5. Broderick and Neufeldt discussed the need to fill high-tech jobs and a long-needed paradigm shift of providing access and support to more low-income students. Old Dominion created the Center for Social Mobility to address these needs. The center brings together higher education leaders from across the Commonwealth of Virginia and national experts to advance programs that increase social mobility. As a national leader in social mobility research and initiatives, the Center uses a multipronged approach to stimulate collaboration to create and expand affordable student pathways.
