A panel discussion featuring Walter W. McMahon, Helaine Silverman, & Allison Witt. 


Walter W. McMahon is an economist who studies the development,  financing, and macroeconomics of education. His recent work on the rate of total return to higher education shows that underinvestment in the US is leading to sub-optimal rates of growth and development.


Helaine Silverman teaches in the Department of Anthropology and is the Director of the Collaborative for Cultural Heritage Management Policy (CHAMP), which is dedicated to the critical study of cultural heritage and museum practices around the world.


Allison Witt is the Director of International Programs in the College of Education where she teaches Global Studies in Education and is the Program Leader for the International Education Administration and Leadership program. 

Part of a series of events in the 2018-2019 academic year in connection with the Joint Area Centers initiative on Global Higher Education Trends, with support from the United States Department of Education Title VI program.
