In the book, Thorp and Goldstein provide a timely assessment of the state of higher education, which has come under criticism in recent years due to rising tuition costs and other factors.
Thorp and Goldstein will discuss “Our Higher Calling” on Tuesday, March 5, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in Emerson Auditorium in Knight Hall. A reception and book signing will follow the talk. The event is free and open to the public.
