Duderstadt: A Master Plan for Higher Education in the Midwest

March 31, 2011

As promised, James Duderstadt and the Chicago Council have today released a report entitled “A Master Plan for Higher Education in the Midwest: A Roadmap to the Future of the Nation’s Heartland.”  From the Chicago Council’s press release:

Duderstadt argues the American Midwest, a region that once powered the industrial economy, created the middle class, and defended democracy, is floundering in a 21st century global economy driven by knowledge and innovation. The report recommends streamlining curricula from K-12 through post-secondary education, exploring alternative higher education funding mechanisms, redefining the role of community colleges, and promoting a culture of lifelong learning.
