Description/Abstract

Now is the time, as the Kellogg Commission has observed, for colleges and universities "to reshape our historic agreement with the American people so that it fits the times that are emerging instead of the times that have passed.” In the new world being forged by shared knowledge, universities are superbly positioned to transform themselves and their communities.We find ourselves on new ground, inspired by the possibilities for change, thinking about roles we can and should play in a new America. In this, we're invited by the social-legal theorist, Susan Sturm at Columbia to consider the “architecture of inclusion,” to think carefully about how we deliberately design and give substance and solidity to the inclusive communities and democratic culture befitting a diverse society.
