The Changing Ecology of Higher Education

author workshop for
Remaking College: Broad-Access Higher Education for a New Era
Over the past two years we have convened scholars, journalists and administrative leaders at Stanford University to reorient national attention toward broad-access schools. We have commissioned many of these leading lights to compose concise summaries of the state of knowledge on targeted aspects of broad-access higher education and to set the agenda for inquiry in this sector going forward. Remaking College will assemble the best of these commissions into a compact, indispensible primer on the largest and arguably most dynamic sector of US higher education today.

Date: Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 2:00pm-8:00pm and Friday, November 30, 2012 - 9:00am-4:30pm

Location: NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development
