Presidents' Trust Seminar


Seminar for Members of the Presidents’ Trust
Friday, January 25, 2:30-5:30 pm


The Presidents’ Trust is a special leadership group designed for AAC&U member presidents to engage directly with AAC&U leaders and peers from all sectors of higher education to influence the conversations, agendas, and reforms we face today.  The Trust provides unique resources and special forums for members in order to make the case for a liberal education on campus and in the public square.

Lynn Pasquerella, AAC&U President, and Grant Cornwell, President of Rollins College and Chair of the Presidents’ Trust, are pleased to announce a special seminar at AAC&U's 2019 Annual Meeting for members of the Presidents’ Trust—"The Coddling of the American Mind.”

Jonathan Haidt (New York University), co-author of The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas are Setting Up a Generation for Failure and co-founder of Heterodox Academy, and Debra Mashek (Harvey Mudd College), Executive Director of Heterodox Academy, will facilitate the discussion.

All Trust members who attend the seminar will receive a complimentary copy of The Coddling of the American Mind.  We hope you will join us for this timely discussion.
