“Cathy Davidson is always inspiring! In her talk, she asked us to think about why we do what we do. Why are we in higher ed? Why are we here? I am here because higher ed changes people’s lives. We are here to improve lives. What we do gives people greater life chances and it makes for a better society. It improves the social world we live in. My desire is for all of us to become civically engaged, to become better human beings, to feel more responsible for one another – locally and globally. In her new book, The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux, Davidson focuses on this type of engagement. This is what Cathy Davidson is fighting for. This is why she’s here.”
