About the Event

This presentation will summarize the recent activities of the IT-Forum, a National Academies task force studying the implications of rapidly evolving digital technology for the future of the research university. Our early studies suggest that these disruptive technologies will demand a reconsideration of the most fundamental missions, values, and character of the university.
