This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

Much evidence points toward a crisis in public confidence in higher education. While tempting for faculty members to respond defensively, this moment provides an opportunity for researchers, teachers, and community-engaged scholars to make a case for ourselves through finding new ways to articulate our values and to make evident the benefits we provide to our students and, ultimately, to the life of a vibrant and democratic community.

Please join us for the second of three one-hour discussions, Making the Case for Higher Education. In this second event, panelists will examine how we make the case for what we teach.
