Every education institution today is under pressure to do more with less. As we move into the uncertain future, are there proven principles and practices we can draw on from the past? Dr. Andrew Delbanco, professor of the humanities at Columbia University and author of College: What it Was, Is, and Should Be, will speak about the core mission of undergraduate education, and why we must strive to protect it even as we adapt it to changing times.
