CSHE Spotlight

Rick Levin, Cheif Executive Officer, Coursera and President Emeritus, Yale joins the Center For Studies in Higher Education as the final Clark Kerr Lecture speaker. Mr. Levin will plan to give a lecture on Thursday, May 18th  at 4:00pm in the Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall on the topic of  Toward Sustainable Financing of Higher Education. The lecture will feature a moderation by Chancellor Nicholas Dirks and center on the face of rising costs of attendance and an escalating burden of student debt. This talk will offer three suggestions: (1) a novel framing of the argument for public support of universities, (2) conserving capital expenditures by proper accounting for the cost of facilities, and (3) scaling faculty productivity through online education.
