TEDxPioneerValley - Lynn Pasquerella - Liberal Learning, Academic Access and Social Justice

Headlines depict a higher education model that cannot be sustained. In today's context of rising tuition costs, increased loan burdens, and the much-critiqued gap between the academic experience and reality, what is the path to the future for institutions of higher learning? Drawing on her own experience as a community college transfer student and now president of an elite private institution, Lynn Pasquerella makes the case that the liberal arts must be integrated with an institutional and societal commitment to academic access. When liberal learning and access successfully combine, transformation is possible and higher education's purpose of education for democracy is fulfilled. About TEDx x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
