Annual Worldviews Lecture on Media and Higher Education
Worldviews is an ongoing conversation about the relationships, challenges, and potential of the academy and media. Past conferences have asked: How do media cover higher education issues – locally and around the globe? How does coverage shape public perceptions? Does the academy look in media’s mirror to see itself? Can the academy help the press translate complex issues into accessible stories?
In 2015 Worldviews started an annual lecture series to further explore emergent issues in higher education and the media.
