What would higher education look like if it were designed today, to meet the needs of our current society and students?
Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences Dianne Harris interviews Cathy Davidson, prior Katz Distinguished Lecturer and author of The New Education, in a keynote conversation on Monday, November 14th at 1:30 pm in the Husky Union Building South Ballroom. The discussion is part of "Rethinking the Academy."
About "Rethinking the Academy"
The academy as we’ve come to know it operates through systems and structures that were developed many years ago. What would higher education look like if it were designed today, to meet the needs of our current society and students? The College of Arts & Sciences invites you to join us in rethinking the academy—an opportunity for CAS faculty to work collaboratively on the future of teaching, learning, and research in order to address global grand challenges. This initiative supports new course development and opportunities to imagine new structures and modes for teaching those courses.
Events and corresponding initiatives include "The Big Read," Humetrics Workshops, and Dean's Academy Fellows.
On Monday, November 14th, at 1:30pm, Ana Mari Cauce (University President) will introduce Davidson and Dianne Harris (Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences), will interview Davidson about her recent books, her thoughts about the current state of higher education, and her work as director of the Futures Initiative at the CUNY Graduate Center, a program dedicated to advancing equity and innovation in higher education.
Register for the keynote with Cathy Davidson and attend on Zoom or in the Husky Union Building South Ballroom.
