  • What are the successes and ongoing challenges to universities as engines of social mobility? Is the “meritocracy model” a help or a hindrance? What might replace it?
  • Beyond career success, how are universities shaping students’ personal growth and transformation? Is this the key priority of higher education for the needs of a future economy?
  • From an institutional perspective, what drives a university’s trajectory? How much autonomy does a university leader really have? Can they truly direct change?
  • Can higher education guide its own disruption? Or must external agents develop new models of research and learning and compete with the established paradigm to meet “consumer” demand and governmental/societal expectations?
  • Has the Covid-19 pandemic forced new demands on higher education? How much should universities be expected to take on and redress the range of inequities – health, economic, racial, and social – laid inescapably bare by the pandemic? How will they respond?
