Centre for Global Higher Education

The university in the United States has come under increasing attacks and has recently been presented as an 'ideological' institution, a radical liberal institution, not a source of knowledge, evidence, and intellectual contest in service of the public sphere. 

Our three speakers will open up this extraordinary time in the US and invite your questions, discussion and debate.

Speakers 

  • OiYan Poon, The Spencer Foundation
  • Brian Pusser, The University of Virginia
  • Barrett Taylor, University of North Texas
