Public Forum -- is higher education a business?

The number and variety of parties providing higher education services have exploded in recent years. With a wide array of new and often online options, college seekers need no longer assume that they will enroll on an ivy-trimmed physical campus. Nor can they assume that their private college is a tax-exempt organization. This panel will explore what this newly entrepreneurial higher education means for students, parents, academic professionals, and the legacy of higher education as a public good.


Jonathan Feiber, General Partner, Mohr Davidow Ventures
David Palumbo-Liu, Louise Hewlett Nixon Professor of Comparative Literature, Stanford University
