The debate about the importance of higher education to Quebec's future is picking up steam. How do we best mobilize universities as a bridge to bring the world to Quebec and Quebec to the world? How should Quebec's university system adapt to the globalized, knowledge-intensive world of the 21st-century? And most importantly, what funding models and public policies are needed to create a vibrant future for Quebec?

Professor Heather Munroe-Blum, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of McGill University, will survey some global developments in higher education and outline her vision for Quebec's university system in the context of the ongoing debate.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to this most fascinating luncheon presentation.
