The Provost's Forum

Dr. Caroline Hoxby

The Provosts Forums lecture series was established in 2012 to make a significant contribution to our campus dialogue on a vital issue: what public universities should and can be in the 21st century. The presentations by our 201213 distinguished lecturers were of a very high quality, and I expect the same to be true of this years events. 

It is my hope that a great many members of our community, broadly representing our schools, colleges, and departments, will turn out for the 201314 forums. The information and ideas to be presented there deserve to be disseminated and discussed widely throughout our community.
