The Future of Higher Education

A Texas Tribune Event (virtual)

The Future of Higher Education

October 26 - 30 / 12:00 - 1:00 pm Each Day


The return of students and faculty to class and campus this fall is a work in progress and impacted by a long list of issues that remain unresolved. What does higher ed in the age of COVID look like? Can ambitious goals of setting the table of opportunity for all, creating pathways forward for future generations and producing the most workforce-ready citizens of the modern world be achieved in a time of profound uncertainty?

Join The Texas Tribune online each day Oct. 26-30 over lunch — from 12-1 p.m. Central — as we ask how the various universities are faring, highlight the economic challenges faced by schools big and small, talk through best practices in online learning, check in on college sports and debate whether and when we’ll see a return to something resembling normal.

Harrison Keller, TX Higher Education Commissioner

Margaret Spellings, Former U.S. Secretary of Education

Brian McCall, Chancellor of the Texas State University System
