Andrew S. Rosen is currently the Chairman of Kaplan, Inc., and also serves as Executive Vice President of Graham Holdings Company. Mr. Rosen’s book, Change.edu: Rebooting for the New Talent Economy, details the history of American higher education and describes how to restore its preeminence by focusing on the goals of learning outcomes, access, affordability, and accountability. The book earned positive reviews in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Forbes, and Fortune. Bill Gates called it "truly important” for the debate about improving higher education, and Joel Klein called it a “must-read book.”

A light Continental Breakfast will be served at 8:30 for “meet & greet.” Mr. Rosen’s presentation begins at 9:00, followed by a Q&A discussion.
