The De Lange Conference VIII promises to be a forward-looking forum for university leaders, visionaries, and researchers to contemplate the rapidly evolving ecosystem of research universities in response to powerful global forces and disruptive technologies. What forms will the global research universities of the future take? How will the new, global research enterprises at the heart of the university be organized and funded? Which strategies will enhance the competitiveness of research universities seeking to attract outstanding students, faculty, and resources in an increasingly global higher education marketplace? What will the impact of these changes be on our educational mission and values? At this conference, we will hear from leaders who contemplate both changes in the near-term and the longer-term processes that will likely result in profound transformations in the decades to come.
