Leader in Education to Discuss the Public Role of Universities
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.
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,
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.
