Recording: Keynote: Ruth Simmons on Higher Education & American Democracy, Mar 8, 2023

Ruth Simmons has a unique perspective on higher education: She has led a women's college, an Ivy League institution, and a public historically Black college. As the nation's postsecondary institutions face a new and evolving set of issues around access, affordability, and curriculum, hear the pioneering president, in conversation with The Atlantic's Adam Harris, discuss the shifts that she has seen in higher education and where we go from here.
