About This Meeting

Higher education institutions are subject to a great deal of scrutiny and skepticism in today’s increasingly critical climate, but there’s an argument to be made that universities have never been as relevant and important as they are right now.  
Wayne State University’s 12th president, Dr. M. Roy Wilson, will share his perspectives on the importance of universities and on the transformation of Wayne State during its sesquicentennial year. WSU’s 150 history is one of growth, challenge and success, and is inextricably linked to the city of its founding. This fireside chat will touch on history but focuses more on today and tomorrow, and influence, importance and leadership of Wayne State and public research universities.
