ATHENA Roundtable 2018

October 12, 2018 | All Day

Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center, Washington, DC

Join former ACLU president Nadine Strossen, UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh, Arizona State University provost Mark Searle, the Wall Street Journal's Douglas Belkin, and other thought leaders as they ignite conversation around the most critical issues affecting American colleges and universities today: how to build a campus culture of free expression; effective strategies in college governance to contain administrative costs and maximize affordability for students; and ways in which targeted philanthropy can create centers of excellence in higher education.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m., following a continental breakfast. A catered lunch will be served and feature the awarding of the Jerry L. Martin Prize for Excellence in College Trusteeship to Paul Levy, former University of Pennsylvania trustee.

In the evening, we will honor the extraordinary accomplishments of Purdue University president Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr., with the presentation of the Philip Merrill Award for Outstanding Contributions to Liberal Arts Education. President Daniels has been an ardent defender of free speech, and his innovative leadership has demonstrated that a great university can simultaneously lower costs, widen access, and strengthen teaching and learning.
