Join us for a remote fall faculty book group! We'll meet remotely this Fall to discuss the future of education as we read chapters from Academia Next: The Futures of Higher Education. Each participant will receive a physical copy of the book in the mail.

 

"How will current trends transform American higher education over the course of the next twenty years?

The outlook for the future of colleges and universities is uncertain. Financial stresses, changing student populations, and rapidly developing technologies all pose significant challenges to the nation's colleges and universities. In Academia Next, futurist and higher education expert Bryan Alexander addresses these evolving trends to better understand higher education's next generation."

 

If you have questions, please reach out to Janelle Voegele at voegelej@pdx.edu.
