Closing Summit with Distinguished Guests: Reinventing the University

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Closing Summit of the Innovation Forum features is a blue-sky exercise with a panel of notable industry and academic leaders grappling with the issue of creating a "new university," in the context of the today's world. The panel is moderated by UW President Michael K. Young and the lead panelist is Professor J. Rogers Hollingsworth of the University of Wisconsin.

Increasingly, it has been shown that the best universities in the United States are private and expensive. This trend is unsustainable and harmful to the long-term interests of American society. Professor Hollingsworth will the set the stage with a historical look at what has made the most successful and innovative universities thrive. He will reflect on his 1996 analysis of the UW, as well as his research findings.

Panelists will then be led through a Q&A exercise where they will focus on what an institution might look like if it was created in today’s climate, with today’s technology, to serve the needs of today's students.

  • Doors open at 6:00 p.m
    Appetizers and beverages will be provided.
  • Program begins at 6:30 p.m.

RSVP required to innovationforum@uwb.edu.
