Building The Intentional University
In preparation for the UVP Meeting at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, May 30-June 1, I am reading Stephen M. Kosslyn and Ben Nelson’s edited volume, Building the Intentional University: Minerva and the Future of Higher Education (MIT Press, 2017). I was attracted to the volume because Senator Bob Kerrey, our distinguished UNL meeting guest, contributed the foreword entitled Higher Education in the Twenty-First Century. I also wanted to learn more about Minerva, which Sen. Kerrey serves as Executive Chairman for Research and Scholarship, and about which I know little. I’m halfway through!
