Update on NIF’s National Dialogue on Higher Ed


As many of you may know, our friends at the National Issues Forums Institute have been engaged in an ongoing national dialogue series based on one of their latest issue guides titled “Shaping Our Future: How Should Higher Education Help Us Create the Society We Want?”  The guide has been helping facilitate conversations across the country about how our nation’s colleges and university systems should be changing and what role they should play in our society’s future.  The series has continued to move forward, and we wanted to bring your attention to NIFI’s most recent update on the project.
