This one-day conference will examine the implications of these developments for the future of American universities, students and society. What role should universities play in meeting society’s need for expertise and the individual’s need for socioeconomic security in the 21st century? What value does a higher education degree hold for the individual and for society? Should states increase funding for public universities to accommodate the increasing student demand? If not states, who will—and who should—bear the costs of public higher education, and how can a return on this investment be measured and demonstrated to students?
