Approximately a year ago, the Commission on the Future of Higher Education formed by U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings issued its report, A Test of Leadership: Charting the Future of U.S. Higher Education, which called for dramatic improvement in the national higher education system. Focusing on issues of access, affordability, quality, and accountability, the report outlined significant shortcomings and recommended sweeping changes. Our panelists, all members of the commission, will address issues raised in the report and the role technology can play in support of the recommendations.
