Models for the New American Research University

For the past century, the American Research University has been an engine for the production and dissemination of new knowledge, creative expression, and economic activity. Today, the pace of technological change, new demographic and funding trends, and a climate of skepticism about the value of a college degree all pose important challenges. How will UD respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by these and other factors? This Working Group is divided into four subgroups, each looking to define how UD can become a model of the New American Research University.
