Frank Rhodes Lecture Series

Projects / Frank Rhodes Lecture Series
Why is the discussion on the reimagining of higher education scattered across time and place?
What if a supportive platform allowed the brightest minds in institutional innovation to regularly share  their ideas with the public?

Frank H. T. Rhodes, considered one of the most impactful university presidents of the 20th century, published “The Creation of the Future” in 2001, which discusses the past, present and future role of the American research university. The book played a key role in helping ASU President Michael Crow design his model for a New American University, so in the Fall of 2011, President Crow established the Frank Rhodes Lecture Series on the Creation of the Future at ASU.

Designed to help advance his vision of redefining the role of higher education in society, each semester an individual with a commitment to institutional innovation delivers a public lecture on the creation of the future and meets with members of the ASU and greater community.
