World Academy Forum on Global Higher Education will bring together leading-edge educators, universities, MOOCs, technology providers and other stakeholders to brainstorm new models and creative solutions for establishing a world-class system of higher education available to all humanity and to forge an international alliance of stakeholders to make it happen.
Recognizing the huge, rapidly expanding gap between educational needs and resources, the resulting deficiencies in development of precious and perishable human potentialities, and the consequent incalculable losses for individuals, families and communities, which can only be remedied by a massive global effort to meet the challenge, the World University Consortium will seek to develop innovative strategies for enhancing accessibility, affordability, quality, creativity and relevance in the field of higher education at the global level.
WHERE: Cal Alumni Association, UC Berkeley, 1 Alumni House, Berkeley, CA
