Dr. Melik Khoury is the 11th President of Unity College. In today's conversation, Melik shares how Unity is completely redefining what it means to be a student and what they are doing to improve the student experience in today's changing world. Plus, he and Jason discuss affordability and accessibility and where Melik’s personal passion for education originates.
As schools and universities adapt to a changing world, new models of education and student engagement are emerging every day. Building lasting ties with students requires not only thoughtful, seamless experiences, but it also means throwing out decades-old assumptions and traditions altogether.
Joining Jason today is Dr. Melik Khoury. Melik is the 11th President of Unity College, where he has had an impressive and lasting impact. During his rise from SVP for external affairs to executive vice president to chief academic officer, and, finally, into his current role as president, Melik has overseen significant institutional gains, including three consecutive years of record enrollments and more than 20-percent enrollment growth. He has also overseen significant institutional changes, many of which he dives into today.
Melik shares the results Unity has seen after shifting from a semester schedule to five-week terms, and he explains why his school has completely rewritten what it means to be a “full-time” student. Plus, he and Jason discuss affordability and accessibility and where Melik’s personal passion for education originates.
