Higher education provides access to the next stage in a person’s career – but institutions like Southern Illinois University also provide economic opportunity for the regions they serve. SIUC Chancellor Austin Lane discusses how higher education provides opportunities for students and the region, and a local organization develops work and life skills for those in need.

Tune in Thu, Dec. 15 at 7pm on the WSIU stations: WSIU 8.1, WUSI 16.1, WSEC 14.1, WQEC 27.1 and WMEC 22.2 or access the WSIU local broadcast livestream online at pbs.org or via the PBS Video app. Enjoy an encore broadcast Sunday at 11am.
