Bob Heterick Memorial Lecture: What Can a Public University Really Do? - Sponsored by Acrobatiq

Tuesday, February 02 | 2:00PM–3:15PM | Texas Ballroom Salon ABC, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Our nation's leading public research universities have become increasingly exclusive. Admissions practices now routinely exclude the majority of academically qualified applicants, even while state funding for higher education has taken a nose dive. While restoring support for public universities is essential, institutions themselves must rethink their design, especially in terms of scale and accessibility. Through institutional innovation, a subset of public universities must strive to operate at scale and expand their capacities to welcome all academically qualified students representative of the socioeconomic and intellectual diversity of our nation.

Outcomes: Assess what a public university really can do * Define the effectiveness, efficiency, and efficacy of a public university
