Much is being written about the dramatic changes that higher education is facing. As part of our Sharpening Our Vision project, the task force is collecting resources that can provide insights into how our mission - and faculty roles - may be changing. Below, you can find resources about the four elements of our mission: Expanding Knowledge and Idea Development, Enhancing Effective Learning, Informing & Influencing Policy and Practice, and Advancing Faculty Careers.
What will higher education look like in 2023? How can we help invent a better future and embrace the brilliantly disguised opportunities that lie within each of these three areas below? Come to Anaheim and join the discussion!
