Programs

In addition to research and scholarship, the Forum engages in four programs:

Aspen Symposium

The Forum convenes an annual Aspen Symposium. Forum Scholars present research and papers at Aspen symposia, which are discussed and debated by the Forum community. Time is also set aside for informal discussion and reflection.

Master Class. The Aspen Symposium incorporates a Master Class, which allows for in-depth discussions of emerging issues.

Council on Foreign Relations

The Forum and the Council on Foreign Relations established the Higher Education Working Group on Global Issues in 2007. The Working Group convenes annually to explore the role of colleges and universities in a rapidly changing world, and provides senior-level briefings for presidents on the economics, politics, and culture of global hot spots.

Support for this program is provided by TIAA-CREF.
