A Mighty Maze: Charting the Future of American Higher Education

New York, NY
Keynote speaker: Tom Wolfe
Conference: Friday, March 1, 1:30PM-7:30PM, Saturday, March 2, 8:30AM-4:30PM
Dinner: Saturday, March 2, 5:30PM-9:00PM
American higher education has become a maze of the meaner things: illiberal ideologies, broken promises, and intellectual default. Our conference will summon a larger, liberating view of what higher education can do. We have a plan. We will convene to address important issues in higher education today and to celebrate NAS’s twenty-fifth anniversary.
"Expatiate free o'er all this scene of man;
A mighty maze! but not without a plan."
-Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man
