(Note: This event has been rescheduled to this new date after the original event was cancelled due to Hurricane Florence. Please note the new location.)
Join Holden Thorp, provost of Washington University in St. Louis (and former chancellor of UNC-Chapel Hill and dean of the College of Arts & Sciences), and Buck Goldstein, University Entrepreneur-in-Residence, as they discuss their book, Our Higher Calling: Rebuilding the Partnership Between America and its Colleges and Universities (UNC Press). In Our Higher Calling, Thorp and Goldstein draw on interviews with higher education thought leaders and their own experience, inside and outside the academy, to address the purpose and sustainability of higher education.
The event will be held in Genome Sciences Room 100.
