Planning with Purpose

Reflecting the Communities We Serve and the Society We Aspire to Build
Delivered October 28, 2019
Presented by Elizabeth Paul

Planning for the future of higher education has become increasingly dominated by the rapid evolution of new technological tools and habits. The fast pace of innovation has shortened our horizon on the future of higher education, and technology's dominance has distracted our thinking about the greater purposes of higher education in our evolving society. In this session, we will broaden our view into the future and explore higher education's role over the long term as a critical agent of social progress. As we plan for the future, what should we consider to ensure higher education institutions continue to be effective catalysts for the intelligence, ingenuity, and humanity that are critical to social progress?
