Capella’s VP of Academic Innovation to Present at CAEL Conference

November 6, 2013

Just as we get a bit of snow here in Minneapolis, Deb Bushway, Capella’s vice president of Academic Innovation and I are off to sunny San Diego to the 2013 Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) International Conference. Deb will be busy as a both a panelist and presenting during the two-day event.

CAEL is a nonprofit that advocates and innovates on behalf of adult learners to increase access to education and economic security. It’s especially important for a school like Capella with a mission of providing high-quality access to adult learners to actively participate in the dialogue on higher-ed innovation, affordability and completion.
