Expert Panels

President Panel

The President Panel brings together top leaders of some of North America’s preeminent universities. In this panel, they will discuss their best practices and strategies being used to transform their universities into more innovative and entrepreneurial schools, while at the same marrying the Sustainability Imperative with the entrepreneurial context. Join us for a deeply provocative and cutting-edge conversation to learn how each one of these leaders is courageously tackling that transformation, and all the incredible challenges it entails.
