About the Academic Innovation for the Public Good book series:
Stanford Digital Education and Trinity College have organized 10 monthly book conversations via Zoom with leading scholars on how higher education can affect the public good. The program hopes to foster discussion about how to make higher education’s future more equitable and accessible.
Each event features an author of a recently published book exploring the role of colleges and universities in addressing society’s problems. An expert in the author’s field will conduct the interview, followed by questions from the audience. The conversation will last for one hour starting at 4 p.m. Pacific time from January through October on the fourth Wednesday of every month, except for the June event, which will be a week earlier.
