Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Howard Newby took part in a panel debate about the future of higher education, addressing leading educators and government officials at the Going Global conference in Miami.
The Vice-Chancellor, along with panellists including President of the University of Miami in Florida, Donna E Shalala, and Professor of operations and technology at the Indian Institute of Management, Pankaj Chandra, concluded that higher education will continue to grow because young people will increasingly need more skills and knowledge to be employable in the future.
Debating the question ‘will higher education survive the 21st century?’, Chief Executive of Laureate Education, Douglas L. Becker, stated that its future relies on the ability of colleges and universities to provide students with a path to employment while also preparing them to be leaders in their communities.
The panel also noted that advances in technology and globalization are likely to expand opportunities for well-educated young people. They emphasised the need for partnerships between public and private institutions and for institutions of higher learning to continue to think creatively and differently about meeting the requirements of all types of students.
The event was chaired by Dr Molly Corbett Broad, president of the American Council on Education. To watch the webcast of the event please visit: http://www.goingglobal2014.com/video/967/7411.
