March 4-12: Forum programs focus on the future of higher education.
At a time when tuition costs are skyrocketing, for-profit universities are gaining traction, and approximately one third of U.S. students have already taken an online course, the future of higher education is unclear. In recognition of this changing landscape, the Rocco C. and Marion S. Siciliano Forum will examine “The Future of Higher Education.”
The forum will include a variety of events from March 4-12, with several RadioWest shows broadcast live on KUER, a documentary sneak peak, and keynote address on Tuesday, March 5, by John Warnock, co-founder of Adobe Systems and a U alum. The Siciliano Forum is sponsored by the Hinckley Institute of Politics, with co-sponsors the Honors College and the College of Engineering. Other sponsors include RadioWest, the Department of Education, and the Electronic Arts and Engineering Program. All events are free and open to the public. A list of all Siciliano Forum events is available here.
