PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, September 25, 2023 / -- PHILADELPHIA — Parents and college-bound students looking to engage with leading educators should join the <a href="">Second Annual Pioneer Academics Co-Curricular Summit</a>, where they’ll hear from bestselling NY Times Columnist Frank Bruni — author of “<a href="">Where You Go Is Not Who You’ll Be</a>” — among other experts, and meet virtually with representatives of 15 top universities, Pioneer Academics announced today.

The theme of this year’s Summit, “The New Frontier,” reflects the novel challenges that face educators and students today — from generative AI and soaring college selectivity to precedent-resetting decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court. Speakers and audience members will explore the best ways to stay informed and support students, looking for opportunities amid the uncertainty. And representatives of the University of Chicago, Caltech and Colby College will talk about a new initiative to attract small-town and rural students: The Small-Town and Rural Students (STARS) College Network.

“The Pioneer Summit provides one of the only venues in which educators, parents and students can engage with distinguished academic programs from around the United States,” said Pioneer Academics Cofounder Matthew Jaskol. “After New York Times Columnist and Education Author Frank Bruni kicks things off, speakers from Northwestern, Washington & Lee and Pomona will bring their research and experience to the most important questions facing educators and students today. And beginning at Noon Eastern Time, the College Fair will introduce parents and students to members of 15 top schools.”

Among the institutions whose representatives will be available for questions and conversation:

Barnard College
Colgate University
Cornell University
Dickinson College
Haverford College
Johns Hopkins University
Northwestern University
Oberlin College
Pomona College
Stanford University
The University of Chicago
University of California, Berkeley
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
