    In Crisis: American Higher Education

    April 6-7, 2018

    Plenary Speakers: Benjamin Wiker, Gerard V. Bradley, William Deresiewicz, Patrick J. Deneen, Vigen Guroian, Peter Wood, George Dent, Paul J. Griffiths, Casey Mattox, Matthew C. Woessner, Leonard Cassuto, R. J. Snell 

    American higher education is in turmoil like never before. Student debt is at an all-time high, casting doubt on the value of a college education. The liberal arts are imperiled. Serious campus debate and free speech are threatened by politicization. An “anything goes” morality is the norm on many campuses. 

    Against this backdrop, the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life at Franciscan University of Steubenville will host a two-day conference, “The State of American Higher Education, 2018,” to be held at Franciscan University April 6-7, 2018.
