The Future of the University
Join us to discuss the future of the university: what will come of pandemic changes, the fight for tenure, grad and adjunct unions, & more?
Join Jewish Currents for the third event of a new series devoted to the future of key concepts in society today: The Futures Forum. This third exciting conversation will discuss the future of the university. How has the pandemic altered higher education, and which of these changes are likely permanent? What should the public understand about some universities’ attempts to mitigate or eliminate the rights associated with tenure? And how are grad and adjunct unions changing the face of academia today?
Curated by David Myers, this conversation will feature Professor Davarian Baldwin, a leading urbanist, historian, and cultural critic; Dr. Eddie Cole, associate professor of higher education and organizational change at UCLA; historian Caroline Luce, researcher for the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment; and Dr. Maud Mandel, president of Williams College.
