    • Business

When a billionaire delivers a commencement speech and announces that he’s paying off the student debt of all the new grads in front of him, the generous act deservedly makes headlines. But paying off the student debt of a graduating class doesn’t address the underlying problem: The cost of higher education is leaving some people in crippling debt. Enter the higher ed visionaries trying to address the root causes by either reimagining their existing institutions or launching new ones. Rick Merrick, CIO of TCS Education System, joined us on the Workday Podcast to talk about how his school is lowering costs and better serving adult learners by adopting the shared services model often used in the healthcare industry.
