Leader In Education To Discuss The Public Role Of Universities
3, 2000 -- The civic duty of American universities
will be the topic of a talk on Monday, Feb. 14, at the University
of Virginias Curry School of Education.
Miller, president of the American Association of Higher Education,
will speak on "Retaking the Center: The Universitys Public
Role." Miller, the former associate director for the State
Council of Higher Education for Virginia, is the Curry Schools
first Brown Bag lunch speaker this year. The talk will be held at
noon in Ruffner Hall, room 187.
the past half century, American colleges and universities have drifted
away from a central role in the civic life of the country,"
Miller said. "Now, they are increasingly being asked to retake
that center, to assume civic leadership and to use their intellectual
resources for the good of their communities."
talk is free and open to the public.
