American Academy Of Arts And Sciences Launches Initiative To Address Challenges To Public Higher Education

"America's system of higher education, both public and private, has long given America a decisive competitive advantage in the global economy," Berlowitz said. "Public universities have provided a special pathway for immigrants and new generations of learners in America. Today, the ability of the system to maintain high quality and access for all qualified applicants is at risk."

The Academy has assembled a group of senior advisors to guide the initiative. Confirmed participants include Lawrence S. Bacow , former president of Tufts University; Gene Block , chancellor of the University of California, Los Angeles; Henry E. Brady , dean of Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy; Nancy E. Cantor , chancellor and president of Syracuse University;  John T. Casteen III, former president of the University of Virginia; Mary Sue Coleman , president of the University of Michigan; Matthew Goldstein , chancellor of The City University of New York; Robert D. Haas , chairman emeritus of Levi Strauss & Co.; William Powers, Jr. , president of the University of Texas at Austin; Gerald Rosenfeld , Senior Advisor and Vice Chairman of U.S. Investment Banking at Lazard Ltd.; and Frank D. Yeary , chairman of CamberView Partners LLC.

The Academy will organize a series of national conferences and engage leaders in government and industry who influence education policy at the state, federal, and institutional levels. The Academy has received initial support for the planned three-year project from public and private sources.
