New problems, new partnerships: What tomorrow's university must be
In a relatively brief 150 years, human demands on natural systems have, perhaps irrevocably, brought us to an inflection point – the implications of which we do not yet fully understand. Meeting these new and increasingly complex challenges will require massive, coordinated efforts linking academia, industry, and governments. Michael Crow explains why conventional interdisciplinary approaches might not be sufficient, then suggests a new kind of academic enterprise that enhances our ability to cope with tomorrow’s challenges.
Michael Crow is President of Arizona State University. Since 2002 he has guided the transformation of ASU into one of the nation’s leading public metropolitan research universities – a model he terms the “New American University.”
Lectures are free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
Note on Parking: The NMSD campus is under construction and the main gate into the campus will be closed for the month of July. There will be parking in the parking lot adjacent to the theater. NMSD security will be assisting us in getting people to the appropriate parking areas. We regret the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.
