The exchange includes the exchange of ideas and perspectives, but also of students and even executive campus leadership and presidents. President Couey says, “…once you start to engage young people together, that’s when we have the changes. And that’s what we’ve been attempting to do with our organization recently because the opportunities have opened up with industry really trying to be inclusive and coming to our organization.”
