2009-10 Public Events Series: The Future of the University

The California Master Plan for Higher Education of 1960 was built on a foundation of state-supported higher education. That plan and its promise are now in jeopardy. This year, the IHC will explore the immediate UC budget crisis and its intersection with the long-standing “crisis” in the humanities in a series of events entitled The Future of the University. The series will include roundtable discussions on the future of graduate and undergraduate education, on publishing in the humanities, and on the role of the humanities in the corporatized university.
