Conference on the Future of Higher Education

This just in from my ISSOTL listserv:

The Future of Higher Education
Thursday and Friday, December 8-9, 2011
John Tishman Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street, NYC

The Center for Public Scholarship presents the 26th conference from the Social Research journal at The New School. This public conference aims to engage both experts and the public in discussions that will deepen our understandings of the ways in which higher education is changing while many universities enter into global collaborations and the U.S. education model is exported abroad. We aim to outline the ways in which U.S. university leadership can work to ensure that U.S. universities can continue to adapt and thrive as their contexts change.
