Can We Teach Values? Should We?
There is no one more qualified to talk about the state of higher education than William G. Bowen, and that’s what he will do at Colby Monday at 7 p.m. in Ostrove Auditorium as the third Distinguished Bicentennial Lecturer.

A prolific author, former president of Princeton, and former president of the Mellon Foundation, William G. Bowen is one of the most-respected voices in American higher education. He has written groundbreaking books about the role of athletics at colleges and universities, about the consideration of race in admissions, and about the role of socioeconomic status, gender, and race in America’s high college dropout rate.

Bowen will address the state of higher education, whether or not there is an “opportunity” agenda for America, and whether or not we can and should teach values.
