The Future University

Higher Education looks different today. Disciplines are in constant flux. Technology is revolutionizing intellectual inquiry, research, and production. Teaching styles and classroom structures are accommodating an exponential growth in knowledge and increased societal complexity, with the mission of advancing human well-being. Yet, much of the “modern” university is still rooted in its centuries-old traditions, structures, and practices.

The Commons asks:

  • If you were to design the ideal University, for today and tomorrow, what would it look like?
  • How would it function?
  • What would it not be?

In essence, What is the Future University?
