ATHENA Roundtable 2017

October 20, 2017 | All Day

Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center, Washington, DC

Join higher education leaders, scholars, policy experts, and concerned trustees and alumni for an independent conference featuring insights on leadership from the frontlines of campus reform. Panels will address the most pressing issues facing today’s leaders—preserving academic freedom and the liberal arts tradition, cutting costs, and promoting accountability and affordability at America’s colleges and universities.

The event will culminate in a gala dinner and presentation of the Philip Merrill Award for Outstanding Contributions to Liberal Arts Education. The recipient of this year's award is Robert J. Zimmer, president of the University of Chicago. President Zimmer has led the University of Chicago—among the highest-ranked research universities in the world—for over a decade. Under his direction, the University has become the national leader in defending free expression and academic freedom.
