We are excited to announce the date and location of NAS’s national conference and dinner:
A Mighty Maze: Charting the Future of American Higher Education
March 1-2, 2013
27 West 44th Street
New York, NY 10036
The title is inspired by a line from Alexander Pope's poem "An Essay on Man: Epistle 1":
Expatiate free o'er all this scene of man;
A mighty maze! but not without a plan.
American higher education has become a maze of the meaner things: illiberal ideologies, broken promises, and intellectual default. Our conference will summon a larger, liberating view of what higher education can do. We have a plan. We will convene to address important issues in higher education today and to celebrate NAS’s twenty-fifth anniversary.
More details are coming soon.
