Welcome to the Future of State Universities Conference

Held in Dallas, Texas in October of 2011.

The conference brought together thought leaders from across America and around the world, leadership of public universities, state governors and other policy makers to discuss the emergence of new models that can help public universities flourish in the future.

Speakers addressed, with insight and directness, the core components that are changing the most from historic norms: tuition and sources of revenue, instructional delivery and the role of a professor, students’ expectations and access, college readiness, regulatory environment and internationalization. Courses of action were considered that will enable public universities to succeed in a new reality.
