CWA Announces Theme and Keynote Speaker Elizabeth Coleman

The theme of this year’s conference is “What Matters“. CWA Director Jim Palmer explains, “Given the distractions of modern life and the tsunami of information we’re bombarded with daily, it is easy to forget to ask the fundamental questions, the questions of value.  That is why our theme ‘What Matters’ matters.”

That theme will also serve as the title of this year’s keynote address, to be delivered by Elizabeth Coleman, president of Bennington College, one of the country’s leading innovators in higher education. Under her leadership, Bennington has experienced record fiscal health and launched new pioneering curricular programs—including the ambitious Center for the Advancement of Public Action, which encourages students to put the world’s most pressing problems at the center of their education.

Coleman’s keynote address will take place on Monday, April 4 at 11:30 a.m. in Macky Auditorium.

A biographical listing of participants confirmed to date is now online at www.colorado.edu/cwa.
