The Forum for the Future of Higher Education is a community of academic leaders and scholars from across the country who explore new thinking and ideas in higher education. The Forum facilitates shared inquiry and collaboration on issues likely to influence the future of higher education, primarily in economics and finance, new learning media and technology, advances in the cognitive and neurosciences, and the role of the university in the global political economy. The Forum sponsors and creates research, presents scholarship at annual Aspen symposia, and disseminates findings throughout higher education. The Forum also collaborates with the Council on Foreign Relations to explore the globalization of knowledge, and with the Brookings Institution to examine the relationship between the economy and higher education. Additionally, the Forum partners with WGBH Boston to develop dedicated programming on the future of higher education. The Forum is resident at MIT. Previously, the Forum has been resident at Yale, Stanford and Columbia universities.
EDUCAUSE and the Forum have a long-term strategic partnership designed to make available to campus leaders and scholars new thinking on key and emerging issues likely to affect their institutions. EDUCAUSE designed and hosts this website.
