Jeffrey Selingo: "Tomorrow's College: The Future of Higher Education"

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus 203 Butler Library

Jeffrey Selingo, an author, reporter, and editor at large of The Chronicle of Higher Education, will discuss how the perfect storm of financial, political, demographic, and technological forces are changing higher education forever. The event is free and open to members of the Columbia community with a valid University ID.

In Selingo's talk, "Tomorrow's College: The Future of Higher Education," he will describe the college of the future: how students will want to learn, the role of technology, and the risks and opportunities for traditional campuses. He will also discuss how residential campuses can prove their value in a marketplace where students will have many more options. Copies of his new book, College (Un)Bound: The Future of Higher Education and What It Means for Students, will be available for sale after the talk.
