President of Harper College Speaks at Barrington’s White House

February 26, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Dr. Kenneth Ender, President of Harper College, introduces a new educational concept—called the “Communiversity.”  Although a post-secondary credential is now necessary to ensure employment for a middle class lifestyle, millions of young adults are neither employed nor in school. In his lecture, “College Affordability and Completion: Ensuring Pathways to Opportunity,” Ender explores how to expand career paths and employment opportunities by creating a network of secondary schools, the community college, and a local state college or university. This “Communiversity” can deliver a flexible, high-value education at a reasonable cost, meeting the needs of both students and employers.  There is no charge for general admission, but reservations are required.
Barrington’s White House is a unique, historic venue located in the heart of downtown Barrington at 145 West Main Street. This meticulously restored 1898 mansion hosts cultural and community events, and is also available for rental for weddings, corporate meetings, non-profit fundraisers and family celebrations. Visit the web site or call 224-512-4292 for your private tour.
