Join the Conversation on Higher Education’s Future and SLU’s Place in It
As Saint Louis University pursues its strategic goal of becoming a “national exemplar
of transformative educational and research excellence,” SLU will engage in a year
of community-wide conversations about the rapidly changing environment of academia.
Drawing national experts in higher education, a new speakers series at the University
will serve as a foundation for wider community discussions on:
- The challenges facing institutions of higher education, and SLU in particular.
- The future of higher education and how SLU may position itself in that future.
- The innovations taking place in higher education and the steps SLU may take to become
the leading innovator among Catholic universities.
Kicking off this speaker series will be a presentation by Jim Hundrieser, Ph.D., the
associate managing principal of AGB Institutional Strategies, a consulting service
of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges that focuses on
new business models in higher education.
A former institutional vice president with 25 years of experience in higher education,
Hundrieser will present “Macro Trends in Higher Education” at 11 a.m., Friday, Oct.
20, in Carlo Auditorium in Tegeler Hall. His presentation is open to all SLU faculty,
students, and staff.
A second presentation in the series will feature David Warren, Ph.D., the longtime
president of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities and
the past president of Ohio Wesleyan University.
Involved in academia for more than three decades, Warren will offer “Ten Propositions
about Higher Education” at 9:30 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 2, in the Anheuser-Busch Auditorium
in Cook Hall.
Both presentations are open to all members of the SLU community.
