The Future of American Education," lecture by Andrew Delbanco, Mendelson Family Chair of American Studies and Julian Clarence Levi, professor in the humanities at Columbia University.

His address will emphasize how a traditional four-year college experience is in danger of becoming a thing of the past. Arguing for what a true college education should be, this talk will encourage us to remember why making a strong liberal arts education available to as many young people as possible remains central to America's democratic promise.
