Director of Center for 21st Century Universities to Speak in Leading Voices
From Dartmouth Now:
Georgia Institute of Technology Professor Richard DeMillo, a former chief technology officer for Hewlett-Packard, is the next “Leading Voices in Higher Education” speaker.
“Higher education is under assault from inside and outside the academy,” DeMillo says. “There are institutions like Dartmouth that have the brand and resources to set their own course, but we are not islands. What happens in one part of the nation’s system of higher education affects all of us, and that system is not on a sustainable path.”
DeMillo’s talk, free and open to the public, is titled “Abelard to Apple: The Fate of American Colleges and Universities,” and begins at 4:30 p.m. May 7 in Room 003 of the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences.
DeMillo serves as director of Georgia Tech’s Center for 21st Century Universities.
