What's Next for Higher Ed: Navigating an Uncertain Future

 While some universities are thriving, others are struggling.  What is leading to credit differentiation and what is the impact of Environmental, Social and Governance Risk (ESG) factors?

Heading into 2023, the future remains opaque for the higher education sector.   While a portion of the sector is thriving,  a material share is struggling and may face more difficulties depending on enrollment trends for fall 2022 and broader macro-economic conditions.  How are universities navigating this environment?  What is leading some to succeed while others confront deteriorating credit fundamentals? How will Moody's Environmental, Social and Governance Risks (ESG) scores capture some of these risk and when will those scores be available for the higher education sector?
