Leaders address future of global movement of engaged universities

Twenty-one leaders in international philanthropy and higher education met on November 2 at the Carnegie Corporation in New York to consider the future of the rapidly growing global movement of civic engagement and social responsibility in higher education. The meeting was co-hosted by President Gregorian of the Carnegie Corporation, Tufts President Lawrence S. Bacow, and Margaret McKenna, president of the Walmart Foundation. The exchange brought leaders of major private and corporate foundations together with heads of universities active in the Talloires Network, a global alliance of institutions committed to strengthening the civic roles and social responsibilities of higher education.
