Speaker: WALTER RUSSELL MEAD, Editor at Large, The American Interest; James Clarke Chace Professor of Foreign Affairs and the Humanities, Bard College
The modern American university system was established after World War II and grew enormously in the 1960s to become the envy and wonder of the world. But rising costs and a mix of techno- logical and social developments are changing American universities in remarkable ways.
Walter Russell Mead, the James Clarke Chace Professor of Foreign Affairs and the Humanities at Bard College and editor-at-large of The American Interest, reflected on where current trends will lead, what they will mean for existing institutions, as well as the quality and reach of American higher education.
