President Reiss Joins Discussion of Global Issues in Higher Ed
NEW YORK, NY—Washington College President Mitchell B. Reiss participated in the Council on Foreign Relation’s Higher Education Working Group on Global Issues on January 30 and 31 in New York City. The Working Group convenes twice annually to explore the role of colleges and universities in a rapidly changing world and how institutions can most effectively meet the challenges of globalization. At this session more than 60 leaders of American higher education institutions and businesses gathered to discuss current trends and what they mean for higher education.
“The future of higher education will be filled with hard choices,” said President Reiss, who was one of the few participants who represented a small, liberal arts college. “It was clear that all of the players are concerned with the changing realities of this marketplace and understand the urgency with which we need to act.”
