Description

Janet Napolitano - former governor of Arizona and former Secretary of Homeland Security – the 20th president of the University of California shared her thoughts on the key challenges facing higher education. She discussed the need for continued funding so public higher education institutions can maintain and expand academic excellence, research and public service efforts. Napolitano spoke of technology as a necessary tool for educators but warned that “the consequences of a big technological adaptation that fails are dire.” She rallied the audience of over 1,000 educators and administrations by saying “we all have to make the case that we need to educate more students because our country is best served by an engaged, educated citizenry.”
