Next UC Connect – “The future of tertiary education”

What can the five-year-old Productivity Commission add to a thousand-year-old institution?”

The future of tertiary education will be discussed in the next public lecture in the headline-making UC Connect series.

Chair of the Productivity Commission Murray Sherwin will cover topics such as:

  • How well have tradition-steeped teaching institutions adapted to the 21st century?
  • Is growth in tertiary education helping increase productivity and wellbeing in New Zealand?
  • Is the tertiary education system delivering what New Zealanders want?
  • Is it even clear what the system’s goals are?

Murray is an economist with over 35 years’ experience in a wide range of public policy roles.  You can read more about him and the topic here.
