About the forum:

For the presidents, chancellors and provosts of our nation’s colleges and universities, issues on campus grow more urgent and complex every day — from student success and affordability to free speech, diversity and inclusion; from campus unrest to new technologies to the potential impacts of the Trump administration. Given the demands on these decision-makers — and the many constituents they must serve — how can they best navigate their leadership challenges?

This spring, The New York Times will bring together the most influential leaders in higher education to explore powerful ways to address these issues. Our journalists will lead candid discussions with subject-matter experts to uncover innovative solutions. We will look ahead and illuminate the dynamic forces likely to disrupt education in the future. And through provocative onstage debates, revealing interviews and collaborative breakout sessions, we will examine the art of effective leadership and how to foster a successful culture within the unique environments of higher ed.
