The Maryland School of Public Policy Presents "Who Needs College?" - a discussion about the benefits - and challenges - of encouraging more students to attend college.

Monday, December 10, 2012 starting at 12:15 p.m.

School of Public Policy Atrium - Van Munching Hall, University of Maryland

What are the benefits - and challenges of college? Who should - and should not go to college? Robert J. Samuelson is a columnist for the Washington Post. In a column last May 28, he argued that "It's time to drop the college-for-all crusade." University System of Maryland Chancellor - and former University of Maryland President - William "Brit" Kirwan answered back June 7, arguing that it's "Not college for all, but college for more." The School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland have brought the two men together to talk about this increasingly important issue looking at the future of education.

Media coverage is welcome. A mult box will be provided.
