Wave 5: Launching the Next Wave of Higher Education

Tuesday, February 28 | 3:00PM–4:15PM | Regency Ballroom A/B, Lobby Level
Session Type: General Session
Much of American higher education is patterned after antiquated paradigms that were never designed to effectively address the levels of massive college attainment and revolutionary innovation needed for the 21st century and beyond. Arizona State University represents a new higher education model that is uniquely dedicated to the simultaneous pursuit of broad access, overall excellence, and meaningful societal impact. Through the creation of a comprehensive, student-centric knowledge enterprise committed to a culture of innovation, cross-unit collaboration, and the bold application of technology, ASU is demonstrating that a large, complex institution can make high-quality education available at scale and leverage the strength and creativity of internal and external partners to transform learning in unprecedented ways.
