Book Talks at CIC


 Andrew Delbanco - College: What It Was, Is, and Should Be


At a CIC-hosted event in Washington on May 3, Andrew Delbanco discussed his new book, College: What It Was, Is, and Should Be. Delbanco, who is Mendelson Family Chair of American Studies and the Julian Clarence Levi Professor in the Humanities at Columbia University, offers a vigorous defense of the traditional four-year college experience in his book. At the well-attended event, CIC President Richard Ekman said, “Delbanco’s book is a voice of reason in what has become a very shrill debate. He has avoided the hyperbole of other recent books that criticize higher education, and he makes thoughtful recommendations.”
