National Leader in Education to Discuss the Public Role of Universities

January 25, 2000 -- The civic duty of American universities will be the topic of a talk on Monday, Feb. 14, at the University of Virginia's Curry School of Education.

Peggy Miller, president of the American Association of Higher Education, will speak on "Retaking the Center: The University's Public Role." Miller, the former associate director for the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, is the Curry School's first Brown Bag lunch speaker this year. The talk will be held at noon in Ruffner Hall, room 187.

"In 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."

The talk is free and open to the public.
