IAS University Seminar

A conversation with Provost Karen Hanson and Naomi Cheman about what a twenty first-century university might be. The event will take place at 4:00pm on Monday, March 26th in room 230 in the Science Teaching Student Services building.

Join us for a conversation between Provost Karen Hanson and Professor Naomi Scheman on what a twenty-first-century university might be. What exactly do we mean by excellence in higher education? How might we reweave the relationship between the public research university and the public in ways that are specifically responsive to the distinctive challenges of the twenty-first century?
