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?

Coming Events

Discussion, Graduate Student Event, Panel, Public Scholarship, The Future University, Undergraduate Student Event
6:00pm CDT Tuesday, October 6, 2020 Online
Presented by The Commons, the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity, the Center for Service Learning, and the KU Civic Engagement Ambassadors

This series features experts on different aspects of US democracy, and centers opportunities for civic engagement. It is intended to help demystify elements of the systems and processes at work in the US democracy. It is also an opportunity to ask questions of local experts who study and work in this realm. Programs in this series feature campus resources as well as specialists beyond the University. In Part IV: The Feminist Agenda, presenters will speak on topics that bear relevance to faculty, staff, and students at KU as well as first-time voters.
