Higher Education for Everyone hosted by New America & Washington Monthly

24 Oct


24 Oct 12:00 pm - 01 Jan 2:00 pm


New America

740 15th Street NW, Suite 900 , Washington

America’s system of higher education was created primarily for the chosen. But slowly, in fits and starts, it is being forced by policy makers and the market to cater to virtually all Americans. As this happens, our notion of what “college” means is changing, and the old elitist ways of keeping score are under increasing attack.
Please join New America and the Washington Monthly for a panel discussion with individuals on the cutting edge of this “Higher Ed for Everyone” movement, as featured in the Washington Monthly’s newly-released 2018 College Guide and Rankings.


Lunch will be served.
