Forum Futures 2011

Forum Futures 2011 is a compilation of summaries of the papers presented and discussed at the Forum’s 2010 Aspen Symposium. Papers address topics such as reducing the marked disparities in outcomes in higher education, improving productivity and efficiency through a variety of approaches, and the global university marketplace. Scholars include Simon Johnson, on financial reform and the likely genesis of the next financial crisis; Jonathan Cole, on threats to the preeminence of American higher education and how to counter them; Rebecca Blank on building an innovation economy to support higher economic growth; and Peter Tufano on managing risks in higher education, and taking on greater risks when doing so will help achieve your institutional mission.
