Forum Futures 2004

Forum Futures 2004 is a collection of summaries of the papers presented and discussed at the Forum’s 2003 Aspen Symposium. Papers include topics such as scholarship in the digital world, the university-industry partnership, and whether student financial aid policies promote access to higher education. Scholars include V. S. Ramachandran, whose research is beginning to address how the power of the mind might best be tapped; Jim Collins, who applies lessons learned from research for his book, Good to Great, to higher education; Edward Ayers, who describes his Valley of the Shadow project and assesses the future of digital scholarship; and David Collis, who documents the paradox of scope in higher education and how it affects the governance of colleges and universities.
