ON-Lion Letter

A college education has long been both a key ingredient to upward mobility and a crucial means of educating virtuous citizens.  But as tuition and college debt have skyrocketed, graduation rates have fallen, and liberal education has been increasingly squeezed out of the curriculum, higher education has also become a major source of risk and anxiety for middle-class families. 

Is the traditional college model sustainable?  Will technology transform teaching and learning?  Is there still room for real liberal education on our campuses?

The 2015 Bradley Symposium on June 3 in Washington, D.C., "The Future of Higher Education," will ask and try to answer these and other questions.  Speakers at the event will include Purdue University president Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr., the American Enterprise Institute's Andrew P. Kelly, Berry College professor Peter Lawler, the Mercatus Center's Alexander Tabarrok, and Bradley Prize recipient Yuval Levin of the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) and National Affairs magazine.

The Bradley Symposium is sponsored by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee and co-hosted by EPPC and National Affairs.

Registration information is available online.
