Higher Education's Third Horizon

Today, US higher education finds itself at the nexus of economic, social, political, and technological forces. The call for higher education to transform itself has never been stronger, yet the goals of reform are unclear and obstacles seem insurmountable. At a time like this, it makes sense for us to focus on the question of how to sustain what is good or holds promise in our current practice - our first and second horizons -- even as we work for longer-term transformation - higher education's third horizon. The 2011 WASC Academic Resource Conference (ARC) is dedicated to supporting institutions of higher education as they identify their challenges, develop solutions, demonstrate results, and plan for the future.

Join us for new ideas and great discussion at the major higher education conference in the western US.
