“Faculty, Students, and the Common Good”
The 2013 NEA Higher Education conference
March 22-24, 2013
This year's theme, "Faculty, Students, and the Common Good," asks, "As our nation becomes increasingly partisan and polarized, especially between rich and poor, and as public education becomes increasingly underfunded and targeted by anti-egalitarian forces, what is the role of faculty, academic professionals, higher education support professionals and students in creating a more democratic, more decent society? What is the public good, and what does it mean to fight for it?"
