Join us for the first EDF Public Forum of the season!
"Is Higher Education a Business?"
Jonathan Feiber, General Partner, Mohr Davidow Ventures
David Palumbo-Liu, Louise Hewlett Nixon Professor of Comparative Literature, Stanford
Amin Saberi, Founder, NovoED
Linda Thor, Chancellor, Foothill/De Anza Community College District
The number and variety of parties providing higher education services have exploded in recent years. With a wide array of new and often online options, college seekers need no longer assume that they will enroll on an ivy-trimmed physical campus. Nor can they assume that their private college is a tax-exempt organization. This panel will explore what this newly entrepreneurial higher education means for students, parents, academic professionals, and the legacy of higher education as a public good.
reception 5 - 6 PM
