What Is the Right Model in the 21st Century for Post-Secondary Education?

Monday, May 2, 2011 / 2:30 pm - 3:40 pm

The costs of providing a college education and the price tag of tuition are rising just as rapidly as seats in the university classroom are vanishing. Affordability and access are falling victim to budgetary constraints in tough economic times. Can state universities develop alternate models for providing instruction and support services that will ensure longer-term financial stability? Will private university endowments earn strong enough returns on investment to continue the dramatic subsidies that these institutions require to hire strong faculty and provide quality curriculum? How will online access and the broader impact of technology affect universities in traditional, hybrid and online settings?
