The Future of Education
Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, delivered the 2019 Simon Initiative Distinguished Lecture in the Simmons Auditorium of the Tepper Building in March. The lecture, titled “The Future of Higher Education: Three Forces with the Capacity to Transform America's Colleges and Universities,” presented Levine’s perspective on the effects of America’s changing demographics, economics and technology. Levine cautioned that the disruptive changes occurring in present-day society haven’t been seen since the Industrial Revolution.
