In recent years, philanthropic foundations such as Gates and Lumina have redefined the higher education reform agenda around several goals: graduating more students, more quickly, and at a lower cost.
But is it appropriate for public institutions to be shaped by the priorities and judgments of philanthropic foundations? And what do these changes mean for the future of higher education, research, innovation, and creative problem-solving?
Join the Steinhardt Institute for Higher Education Policy for a panel exploring these important issues from the perspectives of higher education philanthropists, researchers, and policy makers.
Friday, October 25, 2013, 9:00 am - 11:30 am
