January 2019 Lecture Series: Gardner on a National Study of Higher Education

Since 2012, Howard Gardner and colleagues have worked on a study of colleges and universities in the United States, which they have recently written about in blog posts on this site.

On January 8, 10, and 14, 2019, Gardner will be presenting a three-part lecture series at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, titled “A National Study of Higher Education: Challenges and Rays of Hope.”

Open to the public, Gardner will share preliminary findings from the research, which focuses on how multiple stakeholders (incoming students, graduating students, faculty, senior administrators, parents, alumni/ae, trustees, and job recruiters) on ten participating campuses think about the goals, challenges, and purposes of higher education in the United States, in rapidly changing times.

All presentations will take place in Askwith Lecture Hall on the first floor of Longfellow Hall at 13 Appian Way, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Below is a brief schedule.

January 8, 5:30-7pm, Askwith Hall, Background and Issues
January 10, 5:30-7pm, Askwith Hall, Findings
January 14, 5:30-7pm, Askwith Hall, Conclusions and Recommendations

We hope that you will join for this special event. (Unfortunately, the lectures will not be livestreamed or recorded.)
