William Jennings, emeritus dean of the College of Business and Economics and interim vice president of University Advancement, believes that they are already doing it. In a rapidly evolving economy, the interdisciplinary, critical thinking skills that higher education emphasizes will be even more vital for real-world success, according to Jennings.
